In 2012, founder of The Printed Peanut, Louise, had graduated from Glasgow School of Art and had spent a few years traveling when she ended up working in a beautiful stationery shop in Vancouver, Canada. This inspired her to start her own line of illustrated products. She set up a basic screen printing operation in the bathroom of her tiny apartment and began to print sheets of patterned paper and cards. The Printed Peanut is still a one-woman operation, but is now based in sunny Yorkshire, UK.
All products are manufactured in the UK and aim to use eco-friendly materials wherever possible. Based in the hills of Yorkshire, Louise works from home in a converted cotton mill.
