CHICHI PRESS was formed in the summer of 2020 when Anna-Louise and Katie were introduced through a mutual friend with a view that they could collaborate. A-L (a graduate of Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art) has been producing her hysterical ‘naughty car paintings’ for over 10 years, with much success. Katie was keen to start her own business, highlighting the talent of British based craftsmen/artists/designers.
After several guises CHICHI PRESS was formed in July. Since then the two of them have come up with a wide range of ideas that will show off A-L’s incredible work to best effect and provide useful, fun gifts that will provide a talking point at any table! Our Placemats and Coasters are merely a starting point.
We feel there is no better time to start a small business that provides quality gifts which have been produced solely in the United Kingdom. We hope that you may feel the same.
