Cath Kidston Ltd was founded in London in 1993 and has since become one of the most influential and original design companies to emerge from the UK. The brand’s original inspiration comes from seeing traditional print and using it in a fresh, surprising and modern way. Cath began to design her own brightly coloured prints and patterns and applied them to simple practical everyday products.
Over the last 20 years, the brand has expanded steadily to become the unique global lifestyle brand it is today, highly recognised by its hand drawn vintage inspired prints. Cath Kidston now offers full collections across accessories, home-ware, laundry, women-wear and children-wear and produces up to 50 hand drawn prints per season. The brand continues to go from strength to strength, expanding collections and opening new stores across the globe. Currently Cath Kidston operates 59 stores in the UK and 68 international stores.
