We’ve found we are happiest making stuff with our hands, and if we can combine a few skills together, even better! It is hugely satisfying to see digital designs leap out of the computer into the real world and land on a piece of fabric we’re printing; seeing a present wrapped in our own scribbled paper almost jiggling to be ripped apart - using tea-towels printed with lavender bits grown in our own garden - I cannot totally fathom why this is so deeply satisfying!
We are not chefs, farmers or in any way able to cater for more than the usual Sunday lunch, but we do love our food - and all things foodish! So to honour all our culinary favourites we have begun Plat du Jour - a series of limited edition food worshipping prints - ‘ Onglet’ is the first one we rustled up, then ‘ Polpo’ came next. It really has been too long in between, so to gather a bit of momentum, we are developing a proper menu of tasty images hoping to show you all this autumn 🍂
..it started with Christmas cards, some t-shirts for presents - and then a market stall a few weeks before Christmas. And then we popped-up in Harp Lane Deli - and it all fell into place! By assembling our wares in a lovely space, gave us the chance to see how we looked as a retail proposition, without a huge risk - we make things we like and get to meet customers who like what we do. They get to meet the creators of their purchases and can ask questions, in a friendly casual way.
