Screen Printing in Action
Frames for Screen Printing

Olive and May has been created out of a passion for home interiors and a frustration of not being able to source what we wanted for our own homes.

Two creatives, an artist and a photographer, taking on the challenges of house renovation projects in the country, met and bonded over a desire to build homes to respond to their new family lifestyles that incorporated themes of country, industrial chic, childhood memories and family history.

Fuelled by this desire, too much caffeine and little sleep (thanks to our gorgeous young girls), the concept of ‘Urban meets Country’, was born.

Located where the beautiful County of Warwickshire meets the rolling hills of the Cotswolds we take our inspiration from our amazing surroundings, our childhood memories, in particular time spent with our Nan’s and our mutual love for functional interior design.

Lovingly designed and screen printed by hand, each piece we produce is unique. Both beautiful and functional the Olive and May product range also has the ability to withstand the demands of family life.

Working with natural fabrics mainly Irish linen, cotton and wool and by only using 100% solvent free inks, everything we produce has the environment in mind too.

Our aim is to develop collections that year on year will compliment a core colour palette so that our pieces will withstand the test of time and to continue the craft of hand printing and to produce hand drawn designs that will be passed down through the generations.

We hope you love our collections as much as we do…..
