General

This dog is Arturo. He's Republic of Happy's assistant, and he's in charge of answering all your questions... In exchange for a treat!

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!

I'm all about prioritising sustainability and ethical sourcing for every product I offer so you can feel good about your purchase. So go ahead and shop guilt-free!

Check out each product page for all the details on each item's eco-credentials. Happy planet, happy people!

I'm biased, but oh yes! All my products are the real deal – top-quality materials, original one-of-a-kind designs, and they're made to last, giving you real value for money.

But they're not just products; they're an investment in your happiness, adding a splash of joy to your home and everyday life. So, if you're wondering if they're worth it, the answer is a resounding YES!

Let me put your mind at ease. All my products feature unique and original prints designed by yours truly. These designs are one-of-a-kind, not run-of-the-mill mass-produced stuff. You won't find these prints anywhere else – they're as unique as you are!

Plus, every detail is meticulously crafted to perfection. I'm all about creativity, originality, and quality, offering products that stand out from the crowd and are made to last. So you can shop with confidence, knowing you're investing in something genuinely special.

Ooh! Feeling generous? I can definitely do that for you!

Just tick the gift wrapping option on the product page, choose your Republic of Happy gift wrap design, add a small note for the gift tag and I'll work my magic! It's the perfect finishing touch to make your gift truly unforgettable.

If you want to, you can add the recipient's address at checkout to send the parcel directly to them. Easy peasy!

Please note: Ticking this option will add a small charge of £3.50, except for the Kitchen Textiles Set and Tea Towels Set which you can get gift wrapped for FREE!

Textiles

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!

Keeping your textile products looking lovely is a breeze! Just follow these simple tips:

  • Hand or machine washing at 30º
  • Using non-bio laundry detergent
  • Turning inside out and washing dark colours separately
  • Skipping the tumble dryer
  • Air drying out of direct sunlight

No dry-cleaning required. Phew!

Not on my watch! I'm a stickler for quality, so don't worry, those lovely colours are here to stay. The textiles will keep looking gorgeous even wash after wash.

I've done my homework, making sure printing methods and colour fastness for my products are top-notch. When you invest in my designs, you're investing in lasting beauty.

The cushion covers are for indoor use only. They won't be very happy with rain and direct sunshine! Designing an outdoor collection is on my to-do list, so keep an eye out!

Definitely! All my textile products are made from high quality, durable fabrics that can take regular use and washing, making them perfect for busy households.

Don't worry! The tiny white specks on the fabric are completely normal and are a result of the printing process on natural fabric.

Sometimes, tiny pieces of lint fall off after the fabric has been printed and leave a small white space. These specks are harmless and won't affect the quality or durability of your product. If you have any further concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Cushion pads

The cushion covers can be purchased with or without a cushion pad. If you prefer it filled, you can choose between British sheep's wool or fibre. They’re both eco-friendly and oh-so-comfy!

• British sheep's wool with cotton casing: handmade, eco-friendly and sustainable. It's also anti-allergy and naturally fire retardant.

• Fibre with corvin casing: made from recycled plastic bottles and environmentally friendly.

I don't offer feather fillers as I can’t make sure the duckies had a lovely happy life.

If using your own, I recommend a 48cm to 50cm pad for a lush plump fit.

Please note: Cushion pads are only available for UK delivery.

Art Prints

All my A4 art prints are printed on museum-quality 308gsm Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper. This paper has a matt chalky finish and a gorgeous smooth texture.

These prints have brilliant colours, deep blacks, and striking contrasts, and perfect reproduction of detail! Plus, the paper is acid and lignin-free, ensuring the longevity of your prints.

My A4 art prints are printed on museum-grade paper using the giclée printing technique, ensuring they are long-lasting.

The Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper I use is acid and lignin-free, meeting the highest standards for age resistance and specially designed for fine art applications. In average daylight conditions, the giclée life expectancy is 80+ years!

However, to make sure your print lasts that long, it's essential to take good care of it. Avoid exposing it to bright light or heat sources, and keep it away from humidity. These simple precautions will help keep your print looking beautiful for years to come.

Giclée art printing is a high-quality printing method used to reproduce artwork, photographs, and other images. It involves using a specialised printer that sprays microscopic droplets of ink onto a high-quality paper or canvas to create a highly detailed and vivid reproduction of the original image.

Unlike traditional printing methods, which use dots to create an image, giclée printing uses a continuous flow of ink to produce a smooth and seamless image with vibrant colours and rich details. This makes giclée prints highly sought after by artists, photographers, and collectors who want to reproduce their work with the highest level of accuracy and quality possible.

All my A4 art prints are proudly printed in the UK at theprintspace, an end-to-end carbon-neutral company.

This means that they minimise their energy usage where they can and use suppliers of renewable energy. Where it’s unavoidable, they offset all of their carbon emissions by investing in renewable energy projects.

You can find out more about their environmental policy here.

All art prints are currently unframed, but I may offer framed prints in the future, so stay tuned!

For shipping, each art print is carefully packed in a cellophane bag with a sturdy backing board inside a sturdy envelope to ensure protection during transit.

Wrapping Paper

My wrapping paper is printed on 120gsm uncoated/matt paper, on sheets measuring 70cm x 50cm (27in x 20in).

It strikes the perfect balance: strong with a luxurious look and feel. Not too thin to tear easily, yet not too thick to make folding a chore! It's just right for adding that special touch to your gifts and for all those creative crafts!

My wrapping paper is proudly made in the UK using 100% recyclable, FSC-approved paper and printed with vegetable inks. It's a sustainable choice for adding joy to your gifts while caring for the environment.

I will post the wrapping paper sheets rolled in a sturdy cardboard tube. After all, who wants creased wrapping paper? It's all about keeping your gifts looking pristine and ready to impress!

I totally get you! The good news is you don't have to use the paper only for gift wrapping. Here are some other fun ideas for using wrapping paper:

  1. Origami crafts: Create colourful origami animals, birds, or flowers with wrapping paper using online tutorials.
  2. Wall art: Cut out interesting shapes from the paper and frame them for a cool gallery wall.
  3. Laminated placemats: Make unique placemats by cutting and laminating wrapping paper for easy cleanup.
  4. Drawer liners: Add a pop of colour to your drawers while protecting your belongings from scratches.
  5. DIY envelopes: Craft custom envelopes for cards or letters using wrapping paper and online templates.
  6. Book covers: Protect textbooks or notebooks with funky wrapping paper covers.
  7. DIY bunting: String together triangular shapes to create festive bunting for parties.
  8. Gift tags: Make personalised gift tags by cutting out shapes and attaching them to gifts with ribbon.

Hope these ideas spark your creativity. The possibilities are endless!
