Quill & Fox; A Talented Duo

Posted on June 17, 2015 | 0 comments

Meet Andrew and Yas Imamura. A talented duo also known as Quill & Fox. Together these two independently run their self described 'ma and pa' small shop straight from their own home in Portland, Oregon. Small and independent is how these two like to operate and true to their values they personally hand delivered our order to us the evening we were due to fly home!!! We admire their personal approach and we knew immediately their nostalgic and whimsical cards stationery range would fit right on in with Pony Lane.

Meeting Andrew and Yas was like meeting people who would become your friends and here are the talented duo. Wouldn't you want to be friends with this talented duo?

The Quill & Fox paper design studio specialises in hand-designed cards and stationery that evoke a welcome sense of nostalgia. Being a small company, the studio is continuously growing its line of paper goods and is always looking to delve into different creative ideas to expand the medium of paper. 

We have selected a range of Quill & Fox stationery perfect to celebrate an occasion or postcards cool enough to decorate and hang in your home. 

Happy Birthday Piñata and Get Well Soon Card Designs

 

Terrarium Postcard Set of 4 and Fawn and Fauna Notepad 

Everyone had told us that Portland would be the city where designers flock to and creativity is everywhere. This is one city that didn't fail to disappoint. 

Enjoy,

Jen

Craft Me Up and some friendly sibling rivalry?

Posted on March 26, 2015 | 2 comments

You could say we have quite a close relationship with the designer, Angela Young, or as she is better known, Craft Me Up. While it wasn’t a case of sibling rivalry that led Karina and I to establish Pony Lane it did make us stop dreaming and kick started the beginning of our own business and luckily we’ve included Angela and her design brand Craft Me Up along the way. 

Back in 2008 it was a request for a purse by myself that led Angela to find some use for the stash of fabric she had been stockpiling (everyone has a pile of fabric they will one day do something with right?) and it’s been a flood of purses from Angela ever since. Angela estimates 2000 coin purses have found new homes over the last seven years – quite a feat as every product is completely handmade! She's even had customers who are now onto their third or fourth coin purse. Her range has now expanded to include jewellery and home décor items but don’t expect her to do away with her purses anytime soon – they’re here to stay.

Let's get to know Angela a bit more....

1. What you do you love most about working with fabrics?

I love that you can start off with a piece (or a few pieces!) of flat fabric that doesn’t really have a use and within a few hours it can be transformed into almost anything, a bag, a piece of furniture or piece of clothing.

2. Describe your style in three simple words?

Fun, quirky and bright!

3. I know you have a knack of picking the next trends so what do you see coming up for 2015?

There is a lot of natural materials being used now in homewares such as marble, wood and concrete. It has started to flow through to accessories now too with marble patterned fabric becoming quite popular. In my current range I’ve used a laminated fabric which has a wood panel print on it which is just stunning!

4. You travel regularly to gather material and inspiration for your designs, can you share a little secret of a place we must visit or experience?

Well I haven’t quite visited this place yet … but I’m heading there in May … so I would have to say Portland. It has a real kitsch and hipster vibe about it and the locals are known for being crafty so once I’m back I’m sure I will have lots of tips for you!

I have to elaborate that the trip to Portland will be a Pony Lane & Craft Me Up trip, or a collaboration as we call it. Imagine a camper van, three sisters, a couple of national parks and being surrounded by creative and inspiring folks....what a dream holiday right?
