Why colour matters

  • Bright and bold colours boost your mood and create a feeling of optimism and positivity. Nothing like colour to get you out of a funk!
  • Vibrant colours give your home a more cheerful and upbeat atmosphere, making it more welcoming and a happier place to be in.
  • Colour adds energy and vibrancy to any room, making it visually interesting, inspiring, and way more joyful and enjoyable!
  • Colour lets you express your personality and style, creating an irresistible and uplifting space that's as unique as you are.
  • In a nutshell, surrounding yourself with vibrant colours isn't just about aesthetics. It's about improving your quality of life and boosting creativity, productivity, and overall well-being!


Why I do what I do

I'm a Colombian living in England who got tired of the grey skies. I know first-hand the power that colour can have on ourselves.

It can profoundly change the way we feel in our daily lives. It can cheer us up and improve our mood. It did and still does for me!

Every morning, the colours in my kitchen give me the energy boost I need to start my day on the right foot!

I want you to experience this joy too, so I'm shaking things up. I'm bringing some Colombian sunshine to your life.

Enough with the forgettable. It’s time to ditch the dull, bin the boring, and bring in some excitement. Let's do this!

Tea Towels FAQs

Absolutely! All my products are printed and made right here in the UK by some of the most experienced printers and skilful sewing hands. At Republic of Happy, it makes us happy to support UK businesses!

By buying products made in the UK, we are lowering our carbon footprint, saving essential skills, helping local economies and creating job opportunities. Yes please!

The cushion covers, aprons, oven gloves and tea towels are made of 100% cotton drill. It has a lovely soft finish, but it's also strong and durable. Don't be deceived by the gorgeous looks. These products are for using, not just for show!

The fabric is an English product, supporting manufacturing in the UK, and sourced from reliable and responsible producers.

The fabrics are digitally printed with planet-friendly water-based inks. This digital process is much more environmentally friendly than the screen method because water is not wasted washing out screens, and chemicals are not poured into the water system. Happy planet, happy people!
