Cath Kidston needs no introduction. She founded her globe spanning retail empire with one small West London shop, a perfect eye for vintage fabric and a canny sense of the 90s zeitgeist. The rest, as they say, is history. She has long been a friend of The Hambledon. Cath Kidston was one of the very first homewares brands we sold, way back in 2000. Cath's new independent venture is her design studio Joy of Print which works on print based commissions and collaborations. She has also been very busy at home in Gloucestershire, as testified by her lovely book 'A Place Called Home'.
