About The Kind Table

What we do:

We are Ryes first fully eco friendly, plastic free, ethical Lifestyle and Refill store.  We aim to help you make small changes in your life to help make a bigger difference to our world.  From kitchen items, cleaning supplies to store cupboard essentials.

Who we are:

Our team is comprised of our three founders:

Mia Parsons - Finishing school in South Africa in 1997, Mia jumped on a plane to begin a life in the UK.  She has lived in and around central and south London for almost 30 years before relocating to Rye in 2019 with husband (and fellow owner) David and their daughter.

A background in event management and customer service has evolved over time into a passion for a healthier lifestyle, a greater awareness of the impact we have on our environment and a desire to help people make similar changes in their life.

Jess Angell - studied design at Middlesex University, specialising in Silversmithing but has created furniture and jewellery.  She has been an Instagram Consultant for 8 years working with brands to create campaigns, content and grow followers. She has a few popular Instagram accounts @MissUnderground (46K followers) specialising in pictures of the London Underground and @Miss_Jess (83K followers) which reflects her life and travels.

Moved to Rye in 2018 from South London.  Since having her daughter Molly in 2019 Jess has been looking to educate herself and others about sustainability and how we can improve the products we bring into our homes.

David Parsons - Husband to Mia, David has enjoyed a 20+ year career in the hospitality sector, ranging from hotels and conference venues, to restaurants and bars.  This has continued since relocating to Rye in 2019 and in the spare moments in life acts as 'logistics and packaging department' for The Kind Table - handling the distribution of our online orders and local deliveries.
