Graduate Surface Pattern Designer Laura Sherratt started Laura Sherratt Designs in Laura’s parent’s conservatory in December 2008. Laura has loved all things patterned, decorative and embellished from a very young age, experimenting with manipulating images, exploring scale, colour and composition and enjoying drawing and designing for a diverse range of products all through her schooling days.
Whilst studying at University Laura began to specialize in designing for small-scale objects including stationery and greetings cards. Convening her passions onto paper, using buttons, ribbon, crystals, line drawing, collage and material, winning prizes for Industry set product briefs. It wasn’t until sometime after university that Laura decided to set up her own business. Laura had a desperate lust to design for industry but loved her Staffordshire Moorlands based home and family and with very few opportunities near her countryside home Laura took the plunge and set up Laura Sherratt Designs in Leek, Staffordshire.
Laura Sherratt Designs has expanded somewhat since it began as we have now moved into a brand new countryside Barn Studio and expanded our family of employees. The card range has now also expanded with a vast variety of designs available for all occasions. Laura Sherratt Designs now supply to a variety of stores across the UK and overseas. We also sell to leading retailers, such as Waitrose Supermarkets.
We are very much a family run business with a real love for the handmade products we create, and pride ourselves on the love and care taken to create every single card from our studio. We take time to hand finish all cards, individually pack each and everyone, and parcel them up beautifully for distribution via our courier.
At Laura Sherratt Designs we are pleased to say we manufacture quality, handmade products in England. Even our heavy weight board is one of few which is sourced from the magnificent Lake District, England.
