About Us

Mous is an exciting, young and rapidly growing lifestyle accessory start-up with a passion for elegant and innovative product design. In 2016, we launched our blockbuster crowdfunding campaign which raised $2.4 million and subsequently broke the record for the most crowdfunded mobile accessory ever! Not content with resting on our laurels, we were named the best ‘UK Crowdfunded Business of the Year in 2017’ and placed 3rd in The Startups100’s in 2018!

We have won a legion of loyal fans with our innovative viral marketing and engaging social media campaigns.
