Archive Summer fruits

Nothing shrieks Summer like a bowl of strawberries. Here is one of our old archive designs which was created for us by Chloe G. A really pretty design which was printed on beautiful paper with a frosty glitter. Just like a spoonful of sugar! delicious!

Christmas 2013

Every single year we love to take a trip to London to view the Christmas windows for ideas and inspiration. On our last visit in 2013 we saw some pretty cute characters in the windows and  if its not something you have done before its well worth putting in your diary! especially if you include a  little shopping along the way! We share these with our designers around Christmas time and here is a sneak peak


Archive Quirky Pattern

Here is one of our mugs from the archive which was designed by Lou C, a dedicated illustrator she has seen success with card ranges and surface pattern. We have have worked with her on several occasions and her work always proved popular.

Designer of the Month March

With a 2.1 Degree in Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design from Leeds College of Art, Jennie Whitham has spent several years working on her portfolio creating fabulous pattern.
She completed 'The Art and Business of Surface Pattern' course, created by Beth Nicholls and Rachael Taylor in early 2013. The course allowed Jennie to expand her portfolio as well as push the boundaries of her Surface Pattern skills and knowledge. 
With a passion for geometric shapes and florals, Jennie often combines the two, with bright and inviting colours. 
 Jennie has work selected to be published in various surface pattern books which is due for release in 2014 and we have a selection of her work that is currently available.
