Katie Leamon is a design led card & stationery brand rooted in the desire to create beautiful, practical design with tangible craftsmanship. Inspired by the warmth and satisfaction associated with receiving hand written correspondence, along with our innate habits and value associated in everyday tasks. Our paper based products aim to make these tasks more enjoyable while considering their impact on people and the planet.
Best known for our hand-printed greeting cards, made using individual polymer rubber stamps to ensure all the cards are unique and have distinct tangibility. Other leading products include pencils, notebooks and wrapping paper as well as debut leather collection that we launched in 2018.
Founded by Katie in 2010, she continues to design all the products from their studio in North London, while the hand printed cards and finishing of all their products takes place at their family run production studio in Essex, located close to the family home and managed by Rachel & Jane, Katie’s sister & mum. Katie’s partner Ruairi joined the business in 2015 and is responsible for key wholesale accounts and business development.
Our stationery collections have a distinctive aesthetic which we continue to develop and explore aiming to create new exciting designs while preserving the brands aesthetic identity. All our products are made in England using responsibly sourced materials and with great care and attention at every stage of their journey. Our brand has a long term commitment to ethical practices with both ecological and social considerations made on all our products. The brand aims to be plastic free by 2020 and continues to develop ecological alternatives in the industry along with supporting both local and global charities through our Katie Donates Campaign.
We are currently stocked in a number of luxury stores across the world including Anthropologie, Selfridges, Harrods & Fortnum & Mason, as well as many independent concept stores, boutiques & bookshops.
