Victoria Eggs (yes... that is her real name!) creates stylish and charming homeware and gifts, all proudly Made in Britain. Designed to bring a smile to your face her illustrations are packed full of sentiment and nostalgia. The idea came whilst drawing a tea cup and saucer one day, she realised that something so simple could transport you to your favourite place in a flash!
It has been an exciting 10 years from selling her first mug at Spitalfields market in London to stocking over 100 retailers in the UK and overseas with her nostalgic, sentimental and eye-catching homeware and gifts. In recent years products have been stocked in some of the most well-known stores including Harrods, Selfridges, John Lewis, St Paul’s Cathedral, Royal Albert Hall, Paperchase and Whole Foods.
Victoria is happiest when she is designing and her collections range from delicately illustrated wildlife to bold London buses, all in Victoria's distinctive handwriting.
Her products include tea towels, adults and children's aprons, oven mitts, oven gloves, pot grabs, canvas bags, cosmetic bags, cushions, fine bone mugs, egg cups, jugs, plates and baubles, coasters, pot stands, magnets, pin badges, notebooks, greetings cards, gift wrap, tea, biscuits, fudge and wooden decorations.
Victoria is passionate about working with members of the British manufacturing community to create her special collections.
The textiles including tea towels, aprons, oven gloves and canvas bags are printed, hand sewn and finished by a family run business in Lincolnshire and the beautiful fine bone china mugs, jugs and egg cups are screen printed and hand decorated in a traditional English factory.
Victoria also works with other British manufacturers to create her pin badges, prints, magnets, coasters and decorations. This is Victoria’s proud salute to all that makes Britain British.
TEXTILES The cotton is carefully sourced ensuring the supply chain is both ethical and sustainable, and then woven and finished in the UK to our own specifications. We use premium and organic cotton (weight 174gms/sq mtr approx) for our tea towels, 8oz cotton drill for our aprons and oven gloves and 10oz canvas for our bags.
Our textiles are all screen printed using award winning, environmentally friendly, water-based inks which are safer and better for the environment, production staff and end users. It also enables us to achieve vibrant colours which jump off the shelf, which are very colourfast and durable when washed. Every single one of our textiles are proudly handmade in Britain.
CERAMICS The beautiful fine bone china ceramics are screen printed and skilfully hand decorated in a traditional English factory. The blank ware is sourced from overseas, something we are currently working to change.
COASTERS, STATIONERY and MORE... Our coasters are made from FSC certified MDF and use eco-solvent inks for printing. Our gift wrap is 100% recycled and Carbon Zero, the greetings cards are printed onto FSC certified card, the notebooks are printed onto 100% recycled paper printed with vegetable oil based inks and the pins and magnets are made from start to finish in the UK.
