Tatty Devine share why they’re so pas­sion­ate about col­lab­o­ra­tions

“It’s a meet­ing of minds to come up with orig­i­nal ideas.”

Col­lab­o­rat­ing has been a big part of Tatty Devine since day one. You could say that our part­ner­ship is a col­lab­o­ra­tion, as it’s a meet­ing of creative minds to come up with orig­i­nal ideas and ob­jects. We love to col­lab­o­rate with artists, de­sign­ers, char­i­ta­ble in­sti­tu­tions and cul­tural spa­ces, from Bat­tersea Dogs and Cats Home to Poppy’s Paper­cuts. Most re­cently, we part­nered with the Mu­seum of Lon­don and the Fawcett So­ci­ety in cel­e­bra­tion of the Year of the Wo­man and Vote 100. When we col­lab­o­rate with an artist, it usu­ally gives us the op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate some­thing we wouldn’t have oth­er­wise made. It al­lows us to ex­plore new styles, sub­jects and ma­te­ri­als, as well as meet­ing in­spir­ing peo­ple. As a brand, it’s a fan­tas­tic way to reach new au­di­ences. Our lat­est col­lab with Keith Brymer Jones came about through a dream we had of cre­at­ing our own range of ce­ram­ics, and look­ing at who we thought was the reign­ing ex­pert. Nat­u­rally, Keith is the best in his field and he felt like the right per­son for the job! We knew we wanted to make some­thing spe­cial, di er­ent to what was cur­rently avail­able on the mar­ket. He’s pre­pared to take risks which is im­por­tant when you’re mak­ing some­thing orig­i­nal, plus he’s a re­al­ist so knows the mak­ing process in­side out. This is help­ful when you’re de­sign­ing some­thing out­side your com­fort zone. We con­sider Keith a kin­dred spirit as he wants to make beau­ti­ful things and he makes us smile. In the fu­ture, we’d love to work with heros such as Grayson Perry, Cindy Sher­man or Bjork!
