As our website is under a redesign, in the meantime it might be useful to tell you here a bit more about us, the Pattern Bakery. We're best known for patterned designs and illustrations we sell for interiors, fashion and paper industry. Although based in Finland, we sell our work through our agents world wide. At the moment we are four designers, Salla, Maria, Miia and Minttu. We met while all studying in the Helsinki University of Art & Design, formed a group, and the rest is history. (Talk about cutting the long story short...)
We publish a new pattern collection with colour themes and moods annually, but keep adding new designs to it daily. The collection has bold flowers, sophisticated nature scenes, playful kids' patterns and geometric patterns, so all sorts really. We also work on commission according to clients special needs. The patterns here are by Salla, and they are only an example of the variety of styles we have in the collection.
We also have a small collection of products, fabrics where we all drew motifs and pictures and then combined them in a pattern. We've made pillow covers and tea towels from these fabrics and they are sold in Etsy.
We have a studio in Helsinki, an old nostalgic wooden house, and we were delighted to find out that it was actually originally built as a grocery store and bakery. A house with a history of freshly baked bread and pastries keeps inspiring our work (and our tummies). Please pop in for a cuppa if you're in the neighborhood...
