British designer Celia Birtwell collaborates with Melt

At Melt in Ledbury Road we are blessed with wonderful neighbours - small independant stores and designers' shops and studios.

Our absolute favourite being Celia Birtwell whose gorgeous shop is on Westbourne Park Road. Take a trip and immerse yourself in Celia's magical textiles and wallpapers.
We are thrilled to be collaborating with Celia and will be launching the most irresistable chocolate EVER! Using her designs of Dinky - the cat and Beau - the dog.

Celia Birtwell is and was the most important textile designer of her generation and is best known for her distinctive and feminine designs that are timeless, described by many as 'works of art'. Muse of David Hockney and partner of seminal fashion designer, Ossie Clark, Celia Birtwell is a British style icon with an enormous and loyal following.

Beau - too cute to eat?!


Our head chocolatier Chika Watanabe and her team will be hand-making chocolate lollipops and decorating them with Celia's designs of Dinky and Beau. These designs are created with coloured cocoa butter. We will start making them from mid October!!!


Melt Bar Collection


We have a real fan base for our Melt Bar Collection, an impressive 16 different recipes. This is something we can achieve as a small, independent chocolate company. We make small batches by hand which enables us to use a greater variety of ingredients. We are just about to add 4 more to total a whopping 20 different bars!! As soon as our packaging arrives we will launch Salt, Pepper, Almond in dark milk and Sugar free.
For those packaging geeks out there - our chocolate sleeves are made in the UK using GFSmith paper - with the reputation of being the "Rolls Royce" of papers! These are no ordinary chocolate bars!
