The shocking pink awning is the giveaway and promises a brighter world. Inside, Alison Lang, an illustrator and designer of international renown who has pitched her tent among us, sells her very classy tea towels, T-shirts and soaps.
Alison is originally from Toronto, where she trained at the Ontario College of Art & Design, Canada’s premier art school. When she moved to London, she produced weekly illustrations for The Sunday Times, as well as the New Statesman and many other publications and book covers.

Now resident in West Dorset, her screen-printed tea towels celebrate Bridport, West Bay and Lyme Regis as well as Hardy’s Far from the Madding Crowd, with three choices of colours. There are also T-shirts of West Bay in all men’s and women’s sizes and homemade cold-process Jurassic soap.
