Vinegar & Brown Paper

Vinegar & Brown Paper was founded by Andy in 2011, after he left his career in advertising. His job in the city had made him unwell, and he wanted to do something different with his life.

The idea of etching on glass came to him, and now his witty words adorn beautiful objects such as apothecary bottles, wall mirrors and even our beautiful toilet light switch at the Holly & Co Work/Shop!

Andy says that now, he feels completely fulfilled.

“I spent my entire career being paid to come up with ideas for other people. It’s only now though that I genuinely feel creatively fulfilled by what I do, because these days I spend my time coming up with ideas for me.”
