In A Matchbox - unique gifts in a matchboxThe Marvling Bros were born from the In A Matchbox concept.

When deciding on a name for the company all the good ones like Easyjet and Coca Cola had gone.

Our favourite was a Marvel In A Matchbox, but we did not want to be mixed up with the Dark Knight, and a Marvellous Thing In A Matchbox was just too long.

We decided  we would have to invent a new word and remembered the wise words of Humpty Dumpty in Lewis Carrols’ "Alice Through the Looking Glass", and the concept of portmanteaus – a word made up of two words in meaning and sound.

And so Marvellous Thing became Marvling and Marv and Ling were born.
