Inkabilly is Husband-and-Wife team Karl & Lee. Together we run The Inkabilly Emporium from our studio in Bristol, UK ... where we have been designing and creating our products since 2010.
We are slightly obsessed with 1950’s Americana and Mid Century Design! It informs a lot of our designs (and it also inspires the way we dress and the way we decorate our own home!). We wouldn’t say we are purists though - we love to mix up our Retro! We are just far too excited by colour and pattern to ever restrict ourselves to one era! Colourful Mid Century is probably the safest way to describe our melting pot of vintage interest. Our aim is to create colourful happy things ... and maybe provide some modern solutions to living a retro life!
It's important to us that we live our lives responsibly, both to the planet and everyone on it, therefore we try to run Inkabilly as ethically as possible. We treat all our customers as we would our friends. We love the fact that we have a personal input into each and every product that we sell, nothing leaves the Inkabilly HQ without a good dose of love, care and attention!
We are constantly reviewing our material impact on the planet, from the materials and processes used to make our products, to the packaging we use to ship them out. And we recycle as much as we possibly can … from our paper print-outs, to the cardboard inners from tape rolls!
Prior to Inkabilly, Lee spent the majority of her working life designing and making things for TV, Film, Theatre and Circus, spending over ten years as an Art Director. She has a First Class degree in Design Arts and has sold and exhibited her artwork both in the UK and internationally. Karl has a varied background in printing, custom motorbikes, tattooing and IT.
