Portrait of artist Louise Burgess - Wini Tapp brand owner

Wini Tapp

Hastings, East Sussex

Hello! I’m Louise Burgess, face and founder of wini-tapp. Essentially, wini-tapp is a decorative and gift brand, that sells paper based products, ranging from cut and make kits to decorative kinetic mobiles. The work is characterised by a painterly illustrative style - full of joy and fun. All products are handmade and produced in the UK and printed onto FSC certified cardstock and paper.

The story behind the business
Meet Wini Tapp

Wini-tapp originated around 8 years ago, when my daughter was still quite small. My back ground, before founding the company, was in fine art and art education. I switched to a more illustrative and commercial path as I wanted to have a better income and flexibility around raising a family.

Around this time I also created the first cut and make puppets for a children's workshop. Witnessing how the children’s imagination was ignited by the activity, I decided to make them more widely available to a bigger market. Since then I haven’t looked back and the range has widened into garlands, kinetic mobiles, calendars, and cut and makes artist puppets to name a few.

I hope you enjoy looking, and please get in touch if there is anything I can help with. With love, Louise
