The Port and Lemon brand was started in 2012 by Tracy and Kate, who started their creative careers in textile design. Kate as a print designer and Tracy as a woven textiles designer and have many years of experience between them in the design industry.
They met at an art show and discovered a mutual appreciation for each other’s work as well as the beach, dog walking, coastal pubs and cake!
The strong blue and white imagery has become popular around UK shores as well as making it inland and abroad, as the brand appeals to sailors, seaside lovers and those who aspire to coastal living.
The range has grown and diversified recently incorporating more colour and land based themes, but always maintaining the humour and quirky winks to the past produced in a fresh and contemporary style.
Tracy and Kate also collaborated with charities and organisations designing bespoke products and artwork for clients including the RNLI, The Mary Rose Museum and Toe in the Water charity.
