Our Story


Natural, purpose-driven skincare and innocuous home fragrances, inspired by traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and the healing power of nature. Living in harmony with the planet, using high quality natural botanical ingredients, with minimalist packaging.

With a background in design and having grown up around TCM, homework founder, Stephanie Hannington-Suen, wanted to use her experience to create a collection of products that apply a modern approach to ancient Chinese philosophy to help you find balance.


Our Heritage


A true homage to her heritage, TCM having been forever-rooted in Stephanie’s family - from her Popo picking herbs in the mountains in Tai Po to create her own remedies, to her parents who immigrated to Manchester in 1984 to set up their own clinic - twice-weekly herbal teas and working weekends to pack prescriptions. 


homework is her modern ode to ancient Chinese philosophy and her family that have so heavily influenced the creation of the brand and the importance of showcasing a new lens on an age-old practice.


The brands namesake, inspired by the need to find balance between home and work, and very much in line with the theory of Yin and Yang -  that every object consists of two opposite aspects, that conflict and are interdependent. The universal law of the material world.
