Ordinary Habit was founded with a simple purpose: to create artful objects, designed to be both fun and functional, that would help people access habitual moments of calm and connectedness. Founders Teresa and Echo Hopkins, a mother-daughter duo, believed in the transformative nature of something perfectly ordinary: daily play.
They set out to create products that would be simple to use, beautiful to look at, and luxurious in quality. Starting with a line of jigsaw puzzles, they have now expanded the collections to include matching cards and accessories for home and life. Each item they offer is meant to serve as both a reason to gather together with friends, and as an escape for individuals in search of quietude – games to be brought out at a party, or used as a form of tactile meditation throughout your day.
As a company focused on the belief that cultivating mindfulness is essential to bring about indelible change, Ordinary Habit will be donating a portion of the proceeds on a recurring basis to groups that support emotional and mental wellness. Currently we are donating to The Loveland Foundation, which brings opportunity and healing to Black women and girls.
