Retro brand Pennychoo has developed patterns from its successful greetings card ranges to launch matching notebooks and giftwrap.
The Coast pattern is inspired by fond memories of childhood seaside holidays and features jaunty rows of mid-century modern ceramics jostling with beach-combed objects in sun-bleached, pastel tones.
The Honey, I’m Home! range is a celebration of American post-war optimism in domestic design. This pattern uses cactus motifs from the card range to create uplifting designs in cheerful primary colours. Distressed textures add the vintage feel that characterises Pennychoo’s distinctive style.
There are two colourways per range, two sheets of vibrant wrap per pack (size: 71cm x 115cm) and the A5 notebooks contain 40 sheets of plain paper.
Illustrator and Pennychoo owner Sue Lee says: “These two card ranges have been really popular with customers and both feature motifs that lend themselves brilliantly to patterns, so this seemed like the logical way to capitalise on their success.”
When asked what Pennychoo is working on next, Sue said: “More patterns! I love doing them, so as well as rolling these out onto more products, I‘m exploring licensing opportunities too – I’m absolutely desperate to see those cacti on curtains in a 1950s kitchen!”
