Welcome to Nelly's Treasures. A bright and fun collection perfect as gifts for little ones from illustrator and textile designer Helen Smith.
Hello I'm Helen - the illustrator, designer and maker behind Nelly's Treasures.
I love creating bold and fun interior products for youthful rooms. My aim is to create a collection that gives an instant injection of colour and modern design to your homes whilst giving a nod to nostalgic childhood imagery.
I'm originally from a small seaside town just outside of Cardiff and spend most of my time working from my snug studio at the PrintHaus Workshops, a creative art hub. Within the workshop I am able to take control of the whole production process; through printing to sewing and stuffing. Hand silk-screen printing the cushions gives them a high quality finish and makes colours pop. I love getting stuck in with the ink and letting my creativity flow. More recently I have been combining my work with digital printing too.
Becoming a mother definitely opened my eyes to how wonderful children's interior design can be and I love designing with my own family in mind. I love that I'm able to combine all my favourite things into items that I can share with others and I hope you enjoy them too.
