About Chimps Tea Party

Hi there, I'm Pippa! I'm an illustrator, surface pattern designer and general crafter living in Bristol in the UK.  After studying my degree in Illustration at UWE, I decided to stay and now live in Southville, just off the lovely North Street which is full of independent small businesses.

All of my collages are handmade using photos I have taken myself.  I cut everything out with scissors and glue it all together to make my often slightly silly and surreal designs.  I love the low-tech and physical way of making things, and the special aesthetic that this creates.

I turn my collages into colourful homewares, cards and gifts by having them printed onto materials like fabric and wood.

It's important to me that my products are as environmentally friendly and sustainable as they can be.  I try to use natural materials and eco friendly ink wherever possible.  I believe we should be buying less and buying better, so my homeware designs are meant to be kept and loved for many years.  My packaging is also plastic free and recyclable. 

My mission is to fill homes with colour, nature and a bit of humour so that they can bring people joy every day.  Our surroundings are so important to our well being, so why settle for beige and boring?!
