Brand Focus: Mabel and Bird

Looking for quirky and modern textiles? Check out Mabel and Bird, a hand printed crafty brand that create beautiful cushions, coin purses and brooches! We stumbled across brand owner Emma Pearson's designs and immediately loved her style. We caught up with Emma below...
Why did you decide to start your brand?
Being a maker and creator is what makes me happy. Printing has always been a big passion for me so I was determined to turn it into a job. It has been fun and at times really hard but I am so proud of how Mabel and Bird has grown.

Where do you get the inspiration for your pieces from?
I draw as much as I can. I tend to fall in love with an idea and explore it endlessly until I fall in love again.

What attracted you to working with textiles?
Printing textiles allows me to create so many things, I love interiors but I also love making purses. I hope to add paper range this year.

Do you have a favourite piece from your current collection?
I think I will alway be in love with my clouds. I am working on a new collection at the moment so maybe a new favourite is not far away.

What do you love most about having your own brand, what's been the highlight so far?
Working for yourself is a roller coaster but the buzz you get when people want to buy or stock the textiles you create makes it all worth it!

How would you describe a Mabel and Bird customer?
I think mabel and bird customer is someone who appreciates quality handmade, simple, modern textiles.

What's next for the brand, what do you have planned for the future?
I want to develop my brand with more one off pieces as well as a range of paper product, but mostly the plan is to keep printing and growing.
