“Quirky, great colour palette, eye-catching and jolly. Adults and Big kids love them! I am keeping them for keepsakes…..” are some of the comments shared by Lou Mill’s customers and you can see what they mean at Giving & Living Online from May 10-12, where she will display her full collection to the trade.
Lou’s background was in textiles, where she specialised in knitwear design and then onto a career in the media working as a Photo Editor until an opportunity arose for Lou to go back to her love of designing. She says: “The business was really born out of the love of giving and receiving tasteful cards and ones that can be kept as keepsakes. I love colour and pattern and particularly enjoy using traditional media alongside the digital to produce my contemporary paper designs of Greeting Cards, Prints, Note Cards and Postcards.”
The British seaside provided the inspiration for Lou Mills coastal ’Nautical But Nice’ range. Fishermen, mermaids, boats and lots and lots of seagulls feature on this vibrant vintage style collection. All products are printed on boards and papers that have FSC Creditation.
Lou’s designs sell in Independent shops (bookshops, boutiques, garden centres, and galleries throughout the UK.
