Powder Butterfly a British Design Company
I’m Corinne Lewis-Ward – artist, designer, mum of two – and I founded Powder Butterfly in 2012. I was born in London but moved to the North East 20 years ago. After studying photography at Northumbria University and then at Sunderland University, I knew I wanted to use my photography skills in a distinct but commercial way. My love of British landmarks inspired my work. The first product I created was my Flying Angel tea towel, which celebrates the Angel of the North.
What we Do
Corinne is instrumental in the whole creative, production and retail process. After working from original photographs to produce something fresh and exciting with the iconography of the city, Corinne sources the materials, manufacturers, and fabricators from across the country to create something that will appeal to young and old alike, and to those with a taste for good design. From the start, her aim has always been to create a business that uses and celebrates British manufacturers and goods, and to create a durable, long-lasting product that people will cherish.
What we Love
Here at Powder Butterfly we love great design, beautiful British craftsmanship and collaborating with our tried and tested suppliers and manufacturers. Understanding the manufacturing process is a key element to making beautiful quality gifts, and we can’t wait to explore new ideas with our manufacturers. We love the delight and pleasure that we bring to our customers through our designs and products, whenever our customers give or receive our gifts we know that they will love them. Our products are the perfect souvenir for visitors to the capital, to the North East or any of our featured locations, or would make the ideal gift for those needing a reminder of their old home. We are really excited that plans are afoot to produce further beautiful designs and ranges that celebrate our wonderful cityscapes whilst keeping to our ethos of celebrating the best of British manufacturing.
