The Black Rabbit

Westgate on sea, kent

Hello, I’m Lindsay the founder and designer at The Black Rabbit. My charming, colourful greeting cards all have a little badge as part of the design, an extra present for the recipient to keep and enjoy. The range includes nature inspired paper animal decoration kits which are designed with both kids and adults’ in mind, they’re decorated with my original patterns that will look beautiful in your home. I’m pleased to say you’ll also find some of my original artworks in my store, collages created by hand with watercolour inks and scissors.

The story behind the business
Meet The Black Rabbit

From my seaside studio in Kent I started The Black Rabbit in 2006 making a whole range of products that were influenced by my training in knitwear design, lots of stripey things with plenty of colour. The business name came from the rare black rabbits you can spot on the Shetlands, where my husband and I got married (a perfect honeymoon for a knitter). I began by approaching shops and was delighted that my first customer was Liberty of London. I have since sold my products to stores worldwide including Anthropologie USA and The Wellcome Collection. My range really developed over time, as I discovered what people really loved most were my colourful, patterned illustrations of animals and nature. I’m always warmed by the cheery responses from customers, who I hope can feel the happiness that goes into designing them. Having always used collage in my creative process, I now also offer framed wall pieces of my original work. I make intricate cut paper collages inspired by historical textile design and folk art.
