The name Hilde comes from my Oma (grandmother). Her birth name was ‘Hildegard’, but everyone simply called her Hilde. For 57 years, she shared a life in love with my Opa (grandfather) Horst. I spent many childhood summers with them, where Oma Hilde tought me how to tend the garden, care for flowers and host a good party or two. It’s through these lasting memories, that I have chosen to name my business after her – ‘Hilde’.


My name is Anne Ladegast-Chiu. 

I grew up in the German countryside near the Baltic Sea and in 2013 moved from Berlin to London for love. I am married to a wonderful man with whom I love to escape into nature and go on far away road trips with. After over a decade working as a creative producer and project manager within the media industry, I have combined both my passions and natural talents in what is now Hilde. With an emphasis on storytelling, I’m inspired by nature, life’s stories and the travels with my husband. I love to observe, then turn every thing on its head and look again to find interesting and meaningful solutions. Aesthetically my style is thoughtful and understated. I love stories with a passion and embrace the virtues of kindness and diversity.
