Fresh and vivid designs for home and friends

Hi, I’m Sam at TheHareintheSweater.com, an online shop that has grown almost by accident. Originally, I just wanted to find a way to sell my drawings but quickly realised that hand-making cards was never going to work, so I took my designs to our local printers in the next village, where they transformed my cards into multiples that looked like a finished product. Better still, when I took them to shops, they sold!

The thrill of seeing a design in print is irresistible and so, with encouragement from friends and family, I began to work with other British manufacturers to produce ceramics, tea towels and, most recently, coasters. Six years later, here we are – and my cards are still produced by the same printers today.

I hope you like what you see. Please feel free to contact me at info@thehareinthesweater.com or on Instagram @sampurcellthehareinthesweater
