Our Story


We know ourselves how important it is to know the face and story behind a brand so here is a little bit about us and why we do what we do.

We are the Chan's, Thomas & Alexandra with our 2 young children who are (currently!) 5 and 18 months old. We are what most call 'childhood sweethearts', we met at school from opposite ends of the world, Hong Kong & Scotland and we got married at 19!


We took over Doctor Mother Other fresh out of the first lockdown in 2020, it was exciting to take on a new creative adventure with a brand we already loved. 

For us a family our businesses evolve with us, they are a part of who we are and keeping our kids as first priority is always our goal and our newest designs are born out of that. We love to explore and be outdoors, being in Scotland we are lucky to be around some beautiful beaches and forests so we are always outdoor exploring. 

Thomas is the creative part of the team! Taking our designs from concept to creation and all our designs have been from watching our own children and looking at the world through their eyes. 

Every part of our business involves us as a family with our kids modelling most of our clothes!

With our own retail experience owning shops we know the buying process is so important and finding quality products and especially design led UK made products can be difficult. Which is why the quality of our clothing and where it is made is so important to us and something we never want to compromise on. We are very proud that all Doctor Mother Other clothing is handmade in the UK with supersoft organic cotton.

Owning a small business is such a journey and we thank you for coming along on our adventure as we take Doctor Mother Other onto its next stage.
