Fox and Beau makes the cutest stationary and homewares your eyes would ever see. Everything is handmade and beautifully designed and each piece has its own personality.
Amy and Katie are the creators behind the brand. We were first introduced while setting up our stall at the Favourite Things Markets in Bondi. We got talking (as you do, when you’re neighbours for the day) about how they came about and what inspires them the most. They are just the sweetest and you could really tell that they love what they do. We shared the same level of passion and drive – working late nights, weekends and any spare minute that you have, just to make your dreams become reality. So we thought we’d share their story…
Tell us how it all started…
We both went to high school together, and then met up a few years ago and realised that we shared the same passion for design, craft, interiors and paper. We just meshed so well and decided to launch Fox and Beau. It is our sanctuary, our home away from home. A place where we can get lost and share everything that just means the world to us, next to our cats! We are so proud of how far we have come in such a short space of time. We are proud of the products we make as they are all designed by us, printed in Australia and eco-friendly too!
Where do you get your inspiration from? Any artists or creatives that you follow for inspiration?
We LOVE colour! It is the simplest way to express our work, so we thrive off others that infuse this aspect into their projects as well. There are so many to choose! A few favourites that we admire is Donna Wilson, her colours designs and fabric ooze energy and life! Beci Orpin is another artist that just creates beautiful artwork and projects by using geometrics and fluros.
What are the plans for f&b? Anything new coming up?
Absolutely! We are constantly adding to our stationery store! We are currently working on our Christmas Card range (in-store in October) They are oh so cute!
We are also expanding our design service, and working on creating a delightful wedding invitation range. We are both married, but see the importance of beautiful wedding stationery. This is an up and coming project so watch this space!
Where do you sell your product?
We have a lovely shop that we launched last year, shop.foxandbeau.com.au and also at occasional market stalls in Sydney. We will keep you posted on our next stalls on facebook.com/foxandbeau or twitter.com/foxandbeau
