Our Story

I created Murchison-Hume when my husband and I learned that our youngest son had inherited my allergic sensitivities to common cleaning products. After trying all of the available eco-friendly options, I found that most didn’t work and others were loaded with synthetic dyes and fragrance. That was a problem.

Armed with a Mother’s determination, I sought to create something that was genuinely safe and effective, but also a pleasure to use.

Murchison-Hume Household Cleaning Products marry practicality, SAFETY and style.

You choose carefully and work hard to keep your family safe and make your home beautiful. We’re here to help you keep it that way.

Embrace Sweater Season with Avant Toi Cashmere

Avant Toi 2014 Fall/Winter Collection 

The values of the Avant Toi universe are expressed through the constant exploration of the unknown and the unexpected, perpetually distancing itself from the conventional rules of knitwear manufacturing in order to endow each piece with a sophisticated, one of a kind aspect and an avant- garde spirit.


Breaking the rules in regards to stylistic and aesthetic standards is at the core of Avant Toi’s philosophy. A bridge between the classic concept of refinement and the charm of what is old and worn, in complete opposition to the customary conventions of the cashmere world.


The collections are alive with contradictions. Avant Toi captures the true beauty of cashmere and fine Italian knitwear, by masterfully transforming each piece into a work of art. In this unique reality, men’s and women’s lines interweave into a new dimension, defined exclusively by the wearer.

Destroyed, blended and spray-painted are only a few of the continuously evolving treatments applied to each garment.




The creative endeavor of Mirko Ghignone now celebrates 20 years of passion and success. Characterized by a strong relationship between the art world and aesthetic research, Mirko, eclectic artist and paramour of the force of color, established the brand through the application of his creative instinct to the medium of yarns and knits.


 A pioneer in cashmere evolution, he excels in technical experimentation and above all in the absolute innovation of coloring, revolutionizing the world of piece dying. Central to this process is the introduction of air-brush coloring that empowers each piece with authenticity and a unique, unrepeatable character. Through infinite combinations of shades and hues, each creation recounts its own particular story.
