“A surreal wit pervades Thornback & Peel’s idiosyncratically quaint – yet modern-looking and practical – hankies, deckchairs, tea towels, napkins and aprons.”
Dominic Lutyens, Financial Times

Juliet Thornback and Delia Peel met in 2003. While retaining their day jobs as a florist (Thornback) and theatre designer (Peel), they embarked upon their first collaboration, a series of handprinted clutch bags. They set up a studio in 2006 at Cockpit Arts, London. A year later they established Thornback & Peel to create beautiful, intricate screen-printed pieces for the home.

They soon emerged with their signature style. Borrowing imagery that plays on artistic traditions, they combined modernist geometric patterns with 19th century wood engravings. Their work is inspired by an eclectic mixture of Victoriana, Mrs Beeton’s household management, Mr McGregor’s garden, 17th century microscope imagery of the natural world, Norfolk and Devon. Thornback & Peel is a celebration of the quirkiness of British humour and design.
