Hello, let me introduce you to Pearl and Earl...
Pearl and Earl are a couple… who’s real names are Jacqui and Gareth, which didn't sound as cool or rhyme, so Jacqui decided to adopt this rhyming couplet as her creative alter ego, as their names made her smile. This is what we are all about. Designing things make us happy.
We believe that the secret to happy living is creating little moments of joy to add to our lives.. and everything we design has this ethos in mind. From our art poems bringing a tear of emotion, colourful decorations adding life to a party, to crafts that make our soul happy, each and every one of our products helps inspire, create, give or capture your own moment of joy!
Colour makes us happy, in fact we think it is the spice of life.. so we sprinkle this liberally through our collections, along with a hefty dose of nostalgia and other things that make our hearts sing. Our design style has been called nostalgic chic and we have been lucky enough to win lots of awards celebrating our British design studio.
Life is busy and time is short, but taking the time to create feeds the happy side of our hearts. We are after all a creative studio, as each and every product is conceived and quite often made right here. Which is why some of our favourite projects are the bespoke commissions we are asked to undertake. In the past we have created products for Buckingham Palace, films sets, TV and "Good Do's" everywhere.
We love to appreciate other peoples happy handiwork too, which is why we only use the very best components in everything we do and many hands have lovely touched your packages before they make their way to you.
If you are a fan of colour, pattern, nostalgia, enjoy old school adventures, like a bit of geek chic, are crafty at heart, or a baker or maker, and love a ‘good do’ and a belly laugh or two, then we think you will like what we are about.
We are based on our farm (Home Fire Farm) in the midst of the epic Brecon Beacons, having moved here from London via Arundel in Sussex where our brand was born. We love where we live and work and the Swallow in our logo was Arundel's town symbol and now we have nests of swallows in our rafters, so somehow it was all meant to be. We don't have a shop, but if you are in the neighbourhood you can be assured we normally have the kettle on (although Gareth does tend to eat all the biscuits).
