The brand was established in 1993, when Cath opened the first shop in Notting Hill selling old junk furniture and vintage fabrics. Starting out selling vintage fabrics, wallpaper and brightly painted junk furniture, Cath quickly started creating her own designs. Her clever, witty re-working of traditional English country house style and her love of all things vintage meant that her shop soon became a cult success.
Today, Cath Kidston Ltd is one of the most influential and original design companies to emerge from the UK. Famous for its fun, vintage-inspired prints, the Cath Kidston collection continues to delight old fans and attract new ones alike.
