Ooh, is it getting warmer in here?!

We're set for winter storms in the UK, but we're ready to transport you to more tropical climes and a world of sunny Paper & Cloth yumminess at this January's Printsource in New York!

Our snazzy camel is all packed up and ready to go, we've got our biggest sun hats on and we're bringing the sunshine with us to booth A5, in the form of oodles of tasty new spring/summer additions to our portfolio.

With only 5 more weeks until Christmas, we're getting into the festive spirit with these colourful kidswear pieces from Mini Boden. Mixed brights and hand-drawn patterns keep things fun, especially in that mini skiers print!

We love this rich, optimistic palette - jewell tones are such a lovely way to bring in some colour for autumn/winter, and the little splash of coral keeps things fresh and current.

Midwinter Magic!

Drum roll please!....TA-DAH! It's finally here!

Ever passionate and committed to our illustrative cause, our brilliant illustrator Bec pretty much worked her hands into claws creating all the intricate doodles for this amazing new book, Midwinter Magic.

Entirely illustrated by her (we know, right?!) this new colouring-in adventure takes you on a mystical quest through a wintery land filled with detailed magical kingdoms, embellished kings and queens and THAT AMAZING UNICORN. We're obsessed.

We can't wait to buy this as a christmas pressie for all our friends and family, and we're definitely gonna need a copy for ourselves too!

If you want to grab yourself a piece of Bec's colouring action, Midwinter Magic is available here on Amazon now. Get sharpening those pencils colouring fans, there's a whole lot of gorgeous detail to be filled in!

Dare we mention the 'C' word...

Ok, ok, we know its only just gone October but we couldn't resist this little post.
We've been loving this series of the Bake off, and yes, we are a little bit devastated that its the end of an era as it moves to Channel 4 next year... sad face.
So, as theres only 76 sleeps till Christmas, (eeeek!) why not get ahead with all the planning and present buying and grab some lovely bits and bobs for the aspiring Baker in the family, and you can wrap them all in our fancy 'Mini Bakery' gift wrap while you're at it, perfect!

With Autumn/Winter now in full swing, here's a little snapshot of the new season collection from Zara Mini. We love the sweet little all over prints and soft autumn palette, not to mention the super cute styling - that little raccoon tail!

Tuesday, 27 September 2016

Who says blue is for boys and pink is for girls? This combination has become a bit of an obsession in the studio, and this super cool palette pulls both colours together in a fun way that feels fresh for Autumn/Winter. The bright pop of teal really adds a little extra zing!

Things are getting abstract and arty today at P&C with this bold mini trend. Sketched outlines, scribble textures and naive paint marks... anything goes as long as it’s fun and expressive with a vibrant primary palette!

A few hints of richer, darker tones take this pretty girly palette into autumn and keep things fresh for the new season. Aside from the colour, there is so much to love about this board, especially the beautiful hand-embroidered book cover that's actually a clutch bag! Amazing!

As we officially enter autumn this week (what, already?!) here's a woodland themed mini trend to kick off the season and get us excited for family forest walks and cuddly knitwear.

In this trend outdoor adventures take on a softer edge with whimsical creatures, while muted tones and painterly washes are set off with accents of deep green.

Paper & Cloth products with Land of Nod...

Nothing makes us happier than seeing our work out in the world…. especially when it’s styled to perfection like these beautiful bedroom set ups from the wonderful Land Of Nod.  

Our illustrator and watercolour extroardinaire Gemma whipped out her paints to create the artwork for these super cute bedding sets and that amazing undersea mural! 
We reckon all those marine creatures are loving life in their amazing under water habitat. We wouldn’t mind taking a dip in it either…Snorkels at the ready!

Paper & Cloth studio life

This month, we’ve been sharing photos of our desks and workspaces over on instagram, as little insights into our days here at Paper and Cloth.

Aside from our studio HQ in Northampton, where the lovely Jen captains the P&C ship, our fabulous illustrators who spend their days putting their creativity into producing all of our yummy prints, each have their own home studios in Birmingham, Essex, Bristol and Nottingham.

As you can see we each have our own little touches (not to mention some great pen collections) that makes the space our own and keeps us feeling creative. 
Any guesses who the Disney fan is amongst us?
