Cath Kidston prints are entwined with British culture. It’s from our studio in the heart of London that we take classic items and reimagine them with a smile. It’s British design with a playful twist – an ironing board cover in a pop of cheerful print, a timeless tea-dress with a twist of the unexpected. Practical products made to love and made to last. Our prints themselves celebrate icons of our culture, like London red buses, English garden roses (which you’ll find painted on mugs of tea all over). Even our optimism is distinctly British – more dancing in the rain than assuming it won’t rain at all. We use our heritage to reflect, but also to look forward into a bright future.
As a political theorist, publisher, environmental campaigner, poet, as well as an outstanding designer, William Morris (1834–1896) was one of the single most influential figures of the nineteenth century. Under his direction Morris & Co. grew to the status of Arts & Crafts icon that it remains to this day.
