British eco-ethical lifestyle brand Talented has it all mapped out! Julia Gash, designer and founder of the Sheffield based company, has created a unique and playful range of customizable and sustainable souvenir products, which met with great success at international trade shows this Spring, including NY Now in New York and Ambiente in Frankfurt
Julia creates map like illustrations of cities around the world, which incorporate key landmarks and buildings that can be customized to include a specific brand. Her playful and honest interpretation of the world in which we live, printed onto a British made high-end souvenir range, connects with conscientious consumers around the globe.
“There is a growing trend for stylish gifts for tourists with taste. Talented has created a customizable and contemporary range with ethical provenance to meet this growing demand. We work with suppliers in the UK so that we can offer low minimums and quick lead times, which make it attractive to independent retailers who want to love up their local too. “ says Company Director, Julia Gash.
Cityscape collaborations and stockists include: The London Eye, Warwick Castle, Visit Scotland in the UK, Avoca in Ireland, Arc de Tromphe in France and further afield: Hong Kong Jockey Club and Falkland Islands Museum!
“We doubled our sales from any other trade show at NY Now where we were also shortlisted for Best New Product. Our first attendance at Ambiente in Frankfurt, where we did a live Cityscape installation, saw us sign up a new European distributor. The support we get from BATF is key to enabling us to attend such events and we’re already signed up to exhibit at both shows next year as well as Hong Kong Gift Fair” adds Julia.
The customisable range includes natural and denim canvas tote bags with patriotic red, white and blue stripe handles, tea towels, art prints and a wide range of stationery and souvenirs for children including a Craft Kit and cute little Badge Set to customise your clothing and declare your love for your home town or favourite place.
