Rachael Taylor is a fun & energetic surface pattern & illustration studio. All of our products are unique creations designed by Rachael herself. Our aim is to help you fill your home with wonderful colour & fabulous patterns that will put a great big smile on your face! We create ‘patterns to make you happy’!

Rachael Taylor left her full time design job in 2008 to fly solo! Early on in her career she developed her signature style of layering, textures & quirky hand drawn linework. Shortly after in 2010 the product label was officially born. She started small by designing & manufacturing a few key pieces & tea towels that were well received. After a large demand Rachael expanded the product line and launched an exciting fun brand.

Rachael successfully applied her strong, signature design to a kitchen textiles product line including tea towels; aprons & oven mitts & is now stocked in shops & online stores across the UK, Europe, Australia & the USA. The Rachael Taylor brand can also be seen across a range of gorgeous global licensed ranges from iPhone cases to shower curtains!

Rachael Taylor has become a household name with regular features in the press such as: ‘Company’ magazine, ‘Period Homes and Interiors’, ‘Period Living’ & ‘Homes and Antiques’. The brand is even appreciated by celebrities such as design icon Linda Barker and super stylish TV chef Gizzi Erskine!
