Hello and welcome to Abby Monroe Design and my exclusive collection of gifts, jewellery, keepsake cards and wall art only found on Not On The High Street. From my home studio in Kent I personally hand-make my work with a little help from my cat Mr Pickles.
Using my signature lace patterns I create personal gifts that are a delight to give and receive. Because I handcraft all of my pieces I am more than happy to take on commissions and accomodate most special requests to bring something truly thoughtful and imaginative to your special occassions.
The story of Abby Monroe Design started at Chelsea College of Art and Design, where I was studying for an MA in Textile Design. My journey into porcelain homeware developed through experimentations into casting lace and textiles into concrete. My studio is briming with inspiration, every design idea comes out of my fine art way of working.
I firmly believe in running my business with the best possible moral ethics and I pride myself that over 95% of my materials are British sourced or made. I continue to support my local post office and all of my parcels are personally packed and posted by yours truly.
Please do let me know your feedback, my customers are very important to me.
