No. Used to but it (and copies of it) are everywhere now.

Yes, I don't see why anyone would stop liking something because other people like it.

Allthingsprettyreturns Tue 25-Feb-14 17:47:52

Yes on small accessories

MoreSkyThanWeNeed Tue 25-Feb-14 17:48:37

Yes, certain things.

No, twee teenage crap.

BoiledPiss Tue 25-Feb-14 17:49:27

I can't decide if i do or not, I really like some of the prints, the bird ones especially but every so often i think... TWEE!

I have just been looking on the website and i am still totally undecided!

Ahh cross posts madam! Twee indeed!

Some things, yes.

ISingSoprano Tue 25-Feb-14 17:50:59

Some but not all of it by a long stretch.

NO! Its very telling when the designer hates her own products.

No, I don't like prints of any sort.

No. Any of the fabric I've seen "in the flesh" is poorly printed, and overpriced for what it is (IKEA fabric is better quality). I have an oilcloth bag - handles are wrong length (won't fit over shoulder, but bag hits off floor when walking) - so poorly designed.

I do like the look of stuff at a distance, and my mum got one of her sewing books with a free bag pattern which was nice (but the book was �25 and you can get all the stuff in it on Pinterest for nothing!)

Posted too soon.

Basically it is crafty appearing stuff for people who don't actually craft themselves. I've nicer things (aprons etc) I've made in an evening.

How do you know Cath Kidston hates her own products? confused Has she said that?

I like some things - I like the spotty bags & purses but not the birds so much. The floral designs I do sort of like, but not enough to actually spend the money on them IYSWIM.

ShyGirlie Tue 25-Feb-14 17:53:40

No. Used to but overpriced, everywhere and too recognisable. Also many copies. Plus twee. Reminds me of either young teenagers or frumpiness.

And don't get me started on Orla Kiely... bags made of oilcloth, not even leather, that cost over �150 - my friend has two and the fabric is cracking with use.

Obviously I needed a rant!

Mintyy Tue 25-Feb-14 17:54:29

No, it gives me the actual rage. I have posted ranting threads about it before on here.

No, I'm sick of seeing twee vintage everywhere, it's not to my taste.

BoiledPiss Tue 25-Feb-14 17:54:45

She hates her own products?!

Not really.. However I did buy a folding change mat from them, that has been the best baby thing I have bought! Unfortunately, they have discontinued the style... Fits a big toddler on the changing area, wipes, nappies and cream etc and folds down to a great size.
