When we first met designer Anna Jacobs at a trade show in London, she was being featured as a new talent in the industry, we immediately loved her enthusiasm for her products, her fabrics and her amazing lamps and shades and we loved them too.
As a company it's part of our policy, that wherever possible, we try to support UK based up and coming designers and artists, also we try to stock product with a difference and Anna fitted both the categories perfectly.
Anna gave up a corporate high powered career in a top law firm to pursue her love of design at the same time as becoming a single mum, nobody can ever accuse her of doing things by halves.
Anna works predominately with inks to produce her colourful prints with graphic art pens, dip and sponge ink plus Japanese tombow pens. Her designs and product fit well with our brand as they are all light, colourful and warm, which produces real stand-out designs.
Here's a short interview with Anna that she did at one of her first events showcasing her amazing product.
Another real positive for us is that all her products are made in Britain, a rarity in todays world, in fact Anna is passionate about the fact that her designs are produced in the UK, and so are we.
