Here at the home of quirky handmade art gifts and greeting cards, inspiration is sparked by life’s special moments. For Penny Lindop, UK designer and Norfolk artist, an evocative childhood spent at her family’s carpet factory kindled a lifelong passion for textiles and all things sheepy.
Nostalgic smells of wet wool yarn and dyes, as well as swimming lessons with her father in dye vats, etched an indelible memory in Penny’s heart. From this tiny seed sewn, a rich tapestry of experiences grew.
Studying archaeology and ancient textiles triggered a fascination with spinning and weaving – and eventually, a love of primitive sheep breeds. From world travel to settling in rural Norfolk, every thread of Penny’s life entwined to inspire an artistic gift business offering something just a little bit different…
Today, Penny’s gorgeous goodies sprinkle magic across the globe. Snapped up by individuals and retailers alike, her distinctive creations simply make people smile… Working alongside a local Norfolk production team, her gifts are awash with British integrity too.
One peek at Penny’s designs, you’ll be mesmerised by their simple appeal and gentle English humour. And if fluffy, tactile gifts make you go as soppy as us, you’ll adore them even more. Handcrafted with textured eco paper from sustainable sources, every print, greeting card and gift accessory is unusual. That’s not all… Penny’s signature style, hand-finishing with rare sheep fleece, gives a unique twist to the collection.
These woolly wonders, sketched in ink and watercolours before printing, feature oodles of images inspired by dog walks, local places and everyday folk. Whether country pursuits or magical fairies, the seaside or afternoon treats, Penny weaves a piece of her soul into every picture.
Best known for her animal themed art, you’ll find a host of adorable creatures from pet dogs and lovey-dovey ducks, to wild sheep and even puffins – each given the fluffy treatment! Though Penny doesn’t design individual pet portraits, she happily personalises some cards and framed prints adding a bubble of heartfelt charm…
Since every print is teamed with a matching card, you can order online gifts in one go without leaving your snug sofa!
