The Blue Ticking journey started when husband and wife team John and Helen Shaw struggled to find individual pieces of furniture for their two children that were not only fit for purpose but they liked and wanted in their home! So with their joint love of interiors and passion for both vintage and contemporary design they set about changing this.
They strongly believe that you shouldn’t have to compromise on style whatever the space. They offer fun and stylish in bucket loads, goods that evoke childhood memories and a luxury feel brand at accessible prices. They pitch the different, the quirky, and the more than a bit pleasing to the eye!
The name Blue Ticking was chosen because they wanted a classic, stylish, simple and grown up feel to the brand, qualities, which the ticking fabric represents. Traditionally ticking has been used to cover mattresses so it also has a real heritage feel to it, which they love. A real bonus is being able to incorporate the fabric into many of their goods to add to their charm and uniqueness.
Blue Ticking pride themselves in producing brilliant things for brilliant kids.
