Elevating the Dining Experience with Beautiful Hand Block Printed Table Linen.
Launched in January 2022, 'Monica Pepper' is a luxury British tableware brand selling beautiful linens, inspired by travel.
Founded by Nicola Morris, the Granddaughter of 'The' Monica Pepper, the brand brings whimsical yet elegant designs to your table. Each and every piece has been hand selected by Nicola or designed in collaboration with Artisans specialising in hand block printing - a true labour of love.
Nicola's passion for table design was passed down from both her Grandmother and Mother, whose flair for cooking and entertaining, schooled her in this playful and expressive art form. When Nicola had her first child, it was time to turn the years of practice laying the table for her Mothers' dinner parties into a new adventure - and so - Monica Pepper was born.
At Monica Pepper we bring you the latest trends and show you how to style our products by bringing you full complete looks. We hope you enjoy our products as much as we have loved creating them for you.
Creating Unique Pieces with Every Stamp of the Block.
All print runs begin with a wooden block, which is hand-carved by artisans who typically learn the trade from their families. The work requires a delicate but deft hand. Carvers create a block for each element of the pattern, which means that within one pattern there are blocks for every border, leaf grouping, or flower style.
Each block is then dipped into colour and stamped with a thump thump of the hand to ensure a strong print on the fabric that is stretched out across long tables.
Monica Pepper partners with multiple printing studios in the capital of India's Rajasthan state, Jaipur, and we want to help keep these local traditions alive.
