Wrendale Designs are an award-winning publisher of greeting cards, stationery and giftware featuring the characterful artwork of artist Hannah Dale.
Hannah Dale began Wrendale Designs in 2012 on a crowded kitchen table in Melton Ross, Lincolnshire.
Inspired by the glorious Lincolnshire countryside, Hannah started to paint hares; loving their expressive faces and wonderful personalities. After printing these designs as greeting cards on a beautifully textured board, she began sharing these with local gift shops and they were an immediate success. Hannah expanded her repertoire and began painting other animals – the rest as they say is history!
Since then the company has won five prestigious Henries awards for their greeting cards (the Oscars of the greeting card industry!) and supplies cards and giftware all over the world. A collaboration with Portmeirion also sees Hannah’s designs appear on mugs, ceramics and melamine kitchen items.
Collectors of the range will love the country kitchen tinware collection including cake tins, storage canisters and a very handy recipe tin, as well as cushions, fabrics and a soft furnishings collection. Wrendale Designs were awarded a Queens Award for export in 2019 for their excellence in international trade, and their success continues to soar overseas.
