Our Story

My dream for creating beautiful and functional linen products for the home began at my kitchen table in early 2012. I have always loved fabrics and printmaking so this, combined with my background in fine art textiles, was my inspiration.

My line drawings have a gentle simplicity which is echoed in the products I design, the linen we use, my life and beliefs. The kitchen table is still an important part of my day.  It's the place where we gather as a family and where I still often sit and sketch, inspired by nature and my surroundings.

As the business has grown, we have continued to nourish our proud Cornish roots, training up makers and printers from our community.

 Our lovely shop and studio sustains our connection with our community in what many people describe as “the forgotten corner” of Cornwall.  It also allows us to meet some of our lovely customers in person!

 About Our Business 

From small beginnings, we are now proud to work with customers all over the world.  We supply shops, sell direct online and work with many online retailers.

 Although our business has grown, our ethos remains unchanged.

Our products are still hand-crafted locally which means we can produce bespoke products for both retailers and individuals.

Our classic designs start life as my sketch book scribbles; fine line drawings capturing the surrounding beauty of Cornwall.  They are inspired by the flora and fauna of the Cornish countryside and coastline.

Our materials are ethically sourced.  They are made using small batch production, with each linen piece hand-printed, using traditional screen-printing techniques.  They are sewn by a team of local artisans, reflecting the hand of the maker.

Each collection of simple and functional linen homeware and kitchenware products is made and printed in our Cornish studios.

Our philosophy is to create products that are long lasting, beautifully made and of excellent quality, with the smallest possible impact on the environment.

Each product is designed to minimise waste, to tread lightly on the earth.  We offer our customers a sustainable, low impact, environmentally friendly alternative to single use products.

 Good for our customers and our planet.
