Cath Kidston: Where It All Began

Cath Kidston is a prime example of creating vintage inspired products that are well made, fun, practical and affordable, taking inspiration from her childhood of creating large patchwork duvets with her family she then decided to create her own pretty floral patterns and voila Cath Kidston the brand was born, and we currently have her latest collection available in our Pink Flamingo Boutique, Rochester or Starfish in Whitstable.

Cath Kidston began in 1993 by opening a tiny shop in London’s Holland Park selling vintage fabrics, wallpapers and brightly painted junk furniture from which she remembered from her childhood.

She cleverly re-worked traditional English country house style which meant her shop became a huge cult success.

Cath Kidston gradually began to design her own prints and products, the first being a printed ironing board cover. Her product base quickly expanded to include an extensive range of homeware products as well as fashion, accessories and kids. This product base seems to grow and grow each year revealing more quirky designs and products.

Pink Flamingo Boutique, Rochester and Starfish, Whitstable offer an array of Cath Kidston products including the latest bag collection from small day bags to large holdalls, cosmetic cases, make up bags, purses, wallets, phone cases and gift sets.
