Hello, let me introduce you to Pearl and Earl.
Pearl and Earl are a couple… who’s real names are Jacqui and Gareth, which didn't sound as cool or rhyme, so Jacqui decided to adopt this rhyming couplet as her creative alter ego, as their names made her smile. This is what we are all about. Designing things that make people Happy.
We believe that the secret to happy living is creating little moments of joy to add to our lives.. and everything we design has this ethos in mind. From our art poems bringing a tear of emotion, colourful decorations adding life to a party, to crafts that make our soul happy, each and every one of our products helps inspire, create, give or capture your own moment of joy!
Colour makes us happy, in fact we think it is the spice of life.. so we sprinkle this liberally through our collections, along with a hefty dose of nostalgia and other things that make our hearts sing. Our design style has been called nostalgic chic and we have been lucky enough to win lots of awards celebrating our British design studio. Our products frequently appear in Editorial and we have styled film sets and TV and even the VIP area at Buckingham Palace for the Jubilee Concert. Oh and our creative crush makes us crafty too... and our founder Jacqui has been named "One of the Top 5 Coolest Stitchers on the Planet".
If you are a fan of colour, pattern, nostalgia, enjoy old school adventures, like a bit of geek chic, are crafty at heart, or a baker or maker, and love a ‘good do’ and a belly laugh or two, then we think you will like what we are about.
We are based in the historic town of Arundel in the middle of the Sussex Downs 1 mile from the sea. We love where we live and work and the Swallow in our logo is the towns symbol which we have adopted as our own. The Duke of Norfolk is our landlord (we rent a rather lovely barn on his farm) and whilst he doesn't pop round for tea very often, if you are in the neighbourhood you can be assured we normally have the kettle on (although Gareth does tend to eat all the biscuits).
Do what makes you happy - P&E x
