Sailing on the deep blue sea

An ode to love, freedom, and courage

Amongst all of our collections, Odyssey is our oldest and best-selling series.
Inspired by Homer's much-loved poem, the series recounts the great adventures of Odysseus, during his ten-year voyage back home to Ithaca after the Trojan War.

In this personal interpretation, designer Chiara Aliotta explores the underlying themes of Greek culture: love, freedom, perseverance, hospitality, and loyalty.

Small and pretty things

We designed our beautiful fine art cards and practical tote bags to remind us how to enjoy the exquisite, small and simple things in life.


Our bags are created from sturdy cotton (which means no ironing after washing!)
They are also printed with eco-friendly inks that mean the beautiful designs can endure washing and scratching.

As if all that wasn’t enough, our elegant little cards are very practical.  You can hang them on the wall to create a special and intimate corner, write a heartfelt message inside for a loved one, or send them with a special gift.
