Your smile, that is what makes helen b tick regardless of whether you are sipping your first coffee at work or enjoying a cosy family breakfast.

helen b is short for Helen Blanchaert, a joyful fortysomething from Ghent, Belgium with tons of artistic talent. Helen draws, designs and creates objects that make everyday life even more enjoyable and that perfectly fit her own universe. She is fond of travelling, good food and exploring the world with her husband Peter and their two daughters. Desert blues music and a cup of good strong coffee allow her mind to wander and to dream up new things.

The leitmotiv throughout the collection are the creations, characters, and quotes drawn in that unique and typical Helen Blanchaert hand which will no doubt lighten up your day.


Whenever possible, helen b’s collection is handmade with the greatest respect for man and nature. Helen is closely involved in all production processes. Up until today, a large part of the collection is produced in a sheltered workshop by which helen b also contributes to the local social economy. Honesty, transparency and joy, that’ s helen b for you.
