My name is Ann Newell and I am the maker behind The Little Kraken, a small indie business run out of my back garden summerhouse in Shoreham-By-Sea. I am a mum of four and decided to start The Little Kraken after the birth of my youngest daughter in order to spend more time at home.
I make a range of fun textile products that I make using my own screen-printed fabrics, which I design and print myself at home. These are mostly homewares and stationary, they make great gifts and I can often personalise them for you too!
A lot of my inspiration comes from living by the sea. Growing up in a small Cornish town and now living in Shoreham I’ve spent a lot of my life on the south coast and this has influenced the bright nautical themes you can see in my print designs.
