Jo Robinson's HAM brand celebrates its first birthday with a pop-up shop in Kingly court, off Carnaby Street. I first met Jo when she held her pop-up last year, and I really love her very beautiful and original designs. The shop's only open for a week, so don't miss out.
"British homeware and paper goods brand, HAM, will showcase its latest designs - Diving Rabbit, Partying Pig and Cake Baking Pig - along with its new screen print collection at its birthday pop-up shop in 2.3 Kingly Court, Carnaby Street, London from Sunday 29th July to Sunday 5th August.
Naturally Olympic fever has gripped the HAM clan; in particular Pig and Rabbit who have been out come rain or shine trampolining, swimming, scooting, partying and generally getting into the swing of things. Jo Robinson, the East London based designer behind HAM, has been busily capturing these animal escapade in silhouette form and working with British printers, potters and manufacturers to bring each to life on a range of quirky products for the home. To celebrate its first birthday HAM will be offering customers up to 25% off the entire range in its Kingly Court pop-up store.
HAM captures unexpected moments from the contented lives of a Pig, a Horse and a Rabbit on a range of thoughtfully crafted and 100% British made wares. Jo Robinson established HAM in 2011. A farmer’s daughter, she grew up in the Shires before training as a fine artist at The Ruskin School of Drawing.
Jo strongly believes in supporting British industry and for that reason has spent time carefully selecting UK suppliers to help craft her products. HAM is proud to say that its fine bone china mugs are created by a pottery in Stoke-on-Trent, the greeting cards are printed by a press in Worcestershire, all fabric goodies are Lincolnshire made and its screen prints are fashioned by Jo in an East London studio.
HAM launched in July last year with a pop-up shop in Carnaby Street. Since then the range has been available online (hammade.com) and from January 2012 through select UK retailers including Liberty London and Graham and Green."
