Our Favourite Brands From Top Drawer
Wrap is a super cool London-based design and publishing brand working with some of the best illustrators and designers in the business. This homegrown brand only uses the best materials to make their products and it reflects beautifully on the shelves of multiple leading design stores globally!
Co-founder Alice Whiteley describes her brand perfectly; 'I created Yawn to promote relaxation.' Yawn spouted from her desire to find pyjamas that were both lovely and comfortable, but one always seemed to lack the other! Yawn's bespoke fabrics has just about every type of sleeper covered (no pun intended) so check them out and get ready to relax.
Whilst living and exploring Senegal over the last 6 years, Sisters Elizabeth and Emma developed a love and appreciation for local artisans. They would visit markets to buy baskets of their own to which they used for just about everything! Artisanne combines modern designs with traditional West African technique; they also work directly with weavers to ensure they receive a fair income for their products.
Another homegrown favourite for all dog-lovers out there! Sweet William was inspired by founder Emma Wood's best friend and Black Lab, William. The brand's signature collection, The Mischievous Mutt, has become their endearing signature. Sweet William is all about celebrating your love for dogs and brightening up your day!
Duck Ceramics is a one woman design team based in her Brighton studio. Simplicity and function drives Founder Alice Duck's work; 'It might be a drunk mug, or a wonky vase, or the lines may not be as straight ... but this is why I fell in love with handmade ceramics.' Stop by the website and have a look for yourself!
Whether you're looking for tea towels, notebooks or miniature paper shoes (there may be some real shoes thrown in there too), Cambridge Imprint has it all! This brand aims to create authentic hand-drawn products without relying on computer generated designs; they thrive on the possibility of a happy accident to encourage creativity.
