CATH KIDSTON is known for her vintage-inspired, cheerful printed fabrics. Since 1993 when she opened a tiny shop in London's Holland Park, Kidston's clever, witty re-working of traditional English country house style led to her cult success. Her company has expanded steadily in recent years to include an extensive range of stationery products and housewares as well as fashion and accessories. Currently there are more than 30 shops worldwide and her successful mail order business continues to grow. Cath Kidston, Ltd. is considered one of the most influential and original design companies to emerge from the U.K. in recent years. Cath is also the author of "Make!"
