Makers Profile: Oh Squirrel
Whilst we're closed, we want to do all we can to support the amazing community of makers and small businesses who we are lucky enough to work with, we will be sharing work on our social media and blogs, introducing you to some of the brilliant makers we stock.
Today we get to talk about Oh Squirrel, a stationery and homewares brand run by Katie Wagstaff. Oh Squirrel makes our fantastic Glitter Cards, and Glitter Prints.

"Founded in London in 2012 by product designer Katie Wagstaff, Oh Squirrel creates exceptionally well made and beautiful products. Inspired by vintage found objects, typography, botanical imagery and retro fabrics, Katie has created a range of pretty party supplies, stationery and homeware." - Oh Squirrel
"Katie has always been a creative person. Whilst working in Fashion, she began to make small batches of greetings cards in her bedroom, using old finds from vintage fairs and charity shops. After selling her wares at local markets, the enquiries came flooding in and Katie decided to take the leap and make running Oh Squirrel a full time job." - Oh Squirrel
We love Oh Squirrel, and now they are even better thanks to Katies hard work in moving towards eco-friendly glitter and packaging for her greeting cards. We are really keen to keep our products as green as possible, and have been speaking with our makers to see what they can do to help.
