Top Drawer Spring 2015 hits London.

For today’s blog post we’ve got a sneak peek at some of the new products that will be launching in the Top Drawer sector of the show. So without further ado, let’s take a look …
Caroline Gardner ~ Stand L49.
Contemporary publisher Caroline Gardner will be introducing a host of new additions to their popular ‘Muchly Lovely’ collection. With signature fun illustrations in a bright colour palette they’re sure to be a huge hit. New products will include cosmetic bags and passport covers and much more.
Northlight ~ Stand I43.
Northlight will be showing their new Bird and Swan Candle Holders by Swedish design duo Bengt & Lotta. These contemporary accessories are inspired by folklore patterns and animals. Each one hand-crafted with care from beautiful Birch wood.
Rice ~ Stand I41 – Top Drawer.
Inspired by paper-mad Tokyo, Rice will be launching a beautiful collection of stationery. Designs mix fun, fabulous patterns with a bright, appealing colour palette.
Alfred & Wilde ~ Stand SP11.
Alfred & Wilde will be showcasing their new range of Plywood Greeting Cards. Stylish, contemporary designs printed on high quality, uncoated board.
Nineteen Seventy Three ~ Stand V53.
With a nod to days gone by, Nineteen Seventy Three will be delighting Top Drawer visitors with their new Mabel Lucie Attwell Card Collection. A set of 14 cards printed on a luxurious quality board. Each decorated with nostalgic children’s illustrations.

Wild & Wolf will be showing off their new selection of canvas bags designed by Hazel Nicholls. The contemporary pouch style bags combine positive messages with cheerful designs that will surely delight the Top Drawer audience.
Scandi-Chic ~ Stand K55.
Scandi-Chic will be presenting a new collection of decorative Animal Heads. Created by Fiona Walker England, each one is handmade and ethically produced under fair trade guidelines.
Five Dollar Shake ~ Stand V45.
Five Dollar Shake will be introducing retailers to new range ‘Walking Through The Clouds. The exquisitely illustrated designs are thermo-graphically printed and delicately glittered. Each card is printed onto a specially sourced board featuring a ‘deckle’ (feathered) edge.
The deckle edges were a natural artefact of paper making prior to the 19th century and so became admired as a sign of higher quality paper and craftsmanship. Carrying the mantle of their posh printing forefathers, Five Dollar Shake will bring a touch of class to Top Drawer this weekend.
