Scamp and Dude

Cool, fun and colourful looking prints at first glance. But look deepwe and there is a special message behind this brand ‘Scamp & Dude’; created by Jo Tutchener-Sharp.

In October 2015 Jo’s life took a difficult turn when she suffered a brain haemorrhage. She had to leave her children for a lengthy stay in hospital to undergo life threatening brain surgery. Every parent understands the feeling you get when you have to leave your child, whether it be a business trip or first day at school. That knot in the stomach and the ache in the heart. It was this moment that inspired Jo to create a brand that helps children feel more secure when apart from their loved ones, and Scamp & Dude was born. From something dark came something light.

The message that a ‘Super hero has your back’ and an embroidered superpower button on the sleeve for those moments when you need a magic boost.


Superpower infused scarves with a difference.  For every scarf sold, we donate another to a woman in need.  This may be a woman with cancer, or the mother of a child with cancer. We want women everywhere to know that we’ve got their back, and to send strength and superpowers when they need it most.  We are donating scarves to women in need via Great Ormond Street and The Royal Marsden.

Delftware – Ceramics to textiles

The striking blue-and-white ceramics from Delft, which this year celebrate their 400th anniversary, have come to epitomise the Netherlands. Yet Delftware’s route to production and popularity relied on a truly international cast of characters. From Chinese porcelain makers, via Middle Eastern ceramicists to a British Queen and her French interior designer, this national icon has truly multi-national origins.

Now a trend for the high street; as these beautifully decorative ceramics become the inspiration for some fabulous prints. Seen below in the likes of Quiz, New Look and River Island. A fresh colour palette mixed with feminine printed details; what’s not to love?

Desmond & Dempsey x H&M

Just in time for lockdown (hopefully) coming to an end, the luxury pyjama brand Desmond & Dempsey opens the bedroom door and steps out into the bright sunlight. Together with H&M, they have created a capsule collection featuring laidback dresses and kaftans, all in unique prints created by hand and inspired by the Desmond & Dempsey founders Molly Goddard and Joel Jeffery’s birthplace Australia. Palms and botanical elements flourish in repeat patterns or Toile de Jouy-like prints in a colour palette of saffron yellow, dusty pink, azure blue, forest green and soft beige.

“Our prints start with an adventure. It doesn’t always have to be far, but a visit to somewhere that has triggered our imagination.”

Desmond and Dempsey

Thought we may as well include some of our favourite prints from Desmond and Dempsey; if you would rather stay in and keep the pyjamas on…

Spread your wings and fly:

As some of us finally come out of lockdown we want to unfurl ourselves and enjoy our new freedom. We are imitating one of the British public’s favourite print themes, the butterfly. Whether it be realistic, fanciful or abstract wing prints these have always been most commercial and appealing prints.
