Frida Kahlo is one of the most famous female artists in history. Inspired by her Mexican heritage and, at the time, ground-breaking interpretation of identity, gender and class, she rose to fame through her many portraits and self-portraits.
In collaboration with the Frida Kahlo Corporation, we have created a licensed range of products with our own unique Frida Kahlo designs.

Shakespeare Birthplace Trust
William Shakespeare is often considered the greatest writer in the English language, creating titles like Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet and Othello to name a few.
The Jacobean Dream design is inspired by a richly embroidered gentleman’s cap in the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust’s collection. A cap that would have been worn during Shakespeare’s time was an indicator of wealth and status.
