For the Love of Pets and Fine, Honest Gifts!

Hi! I’m Kat, owner and creative director of The Kat & Monocle. I specialise in hand drawn design concepts for Fashion, Home and Giftware and am based in London, (the UK). Having worked for a number of High Street retailers, I decided to set up The Kat & Monocle in November 2012 to offer ‘fine, honest goods, that make people smile’!

As a vet's daughter from the north of England, I grew up surrounded by dogs and cats, which are an integral part of my life. It is this, which inspires me to create intricate, pencil drawings, of pets, which are ‘gentrified’, with tops hats, and monocles etc. - hence my brand name, 'The Kat & Monocle' :) Humour and British eccentricity are at the heart of my illustrations and it is through attention to detail, that I aim to captivate my audience!

Prior to working under my own name, I designed surface pattern for all sorts of goods, particularly tableware and wallpaper. I continue to let these products influence my work and love creating repeat pattern, which often features on the reverse of my greetings cards and gentlemen’s ties. My range of dessert plates, mugs, and t-shirts are all printed with my pencil drawn illustrations, and I hope to expand my product ranges further.

As a sole trader, I design all of my prints from scratch. I also hand-make my ties as well as some of my cards. The rest of my goods are printed in the UK, by well respected manufacturers who use environmentally sustainable techniques. An eco-friendly approach is fundamental to my brand, so I therefore ensure that the materials I use are environmentally sustainable too.

I decided to launch my Kat & Monocle shop on Etsy as I felt it would attract the right audience to my products and the type of customer who appreciates the values of my business.

I offer freelance and commissioned work, such as wedding invitations and pet portraits and have worked with clients such as the US wallpaper company, Studio Printworks and Hackney Council in London, (the UK). Some of my greetings cards featured in Elle Decoration’s ‘Name to Watch’ article in October 2013 and I am continually spreading the word of my brand.

Please watch this space as I continue to add more products to my shop. I hope you will enjoy what you see, or at the very least, be greatly entertained ;)
