Sophie Allport homewares use Sophie’s love of nature and the countryside as their inspiration. Collections take shape around one focus, be it a bee, whale, sheep or peony, allowing fans of the motif to collect the whole range, or those less dedicated to dabble in it with a mug, apron or tea towel. There are collections specifically for the kids too - such as space, dinosaur and unicorn - which incorporate kid-friendly items such as melamine dining sets, bibs and pyjamas – they make lovely gifts to the little ones in your life. Founded in 2007, Sophie Allport’s products are now stocked in some 900 outlets in the UK, and 1,300 worldwide. Sophie still designs and works from her home in the Stamford countryside.
