Hello! I’m Helen and I’m the designer and maker behind Cloth & Ink. My designs grow as organically as the inspiration behind them. There’s so much beauty in this world and much of it in the most unexpected places, the tiny flower squeezing up through the crack in the pavement, a flock of birds silhouetted in the sky, a beautiful tree standing proud for decades.
My aesthetic is deeply rooted in the beautiful places I’ve travelled and my English heritage. My designs have a distinct European flavor with the bold prints and bright colors often seen in Scandinavian design. I grew up in a creative home watching my mum making everything from wedding dresses to upholstering furniture and it’s clearly rubbed off on me. I love making things and if I don’t know how to do it you can bet I’ll find out.
My home studio is so full of light and is my haven for my creativity. It’s where you’ll find me at most times of the day, sketching new designs, working on product development, putting my sewing machine through the mill, packaging my sales and catching up with emails over a well earned cup of tea.
