two & eight photoshoot march 2014-80

A combination of modern simplicity and nostalgic classics, ‘two&eight’ is a carefully crafted range of packaging & paper goods, display & event supplies.

For me, the packaging is often more exciting than the gift it hides. Over the years I have collected labels, gift wrap & twine and it was whilst having a ‘sort out’ (as my friends will tell you…. am rather too organized and do not like clutter) that I realized I would love to be able to buy packs of these items. Classic luggage labels, dipped dyed pegs, bakers twine. So many useful applications but nowhere appeared to offer these pieces in sets. I have thoroughly enjoyed developing this range and hope you love it as much as I do. There are many more pieces to come but I wanted to get this first collection ‘out there’.

You may be wondering about the name, ‘two&eight’. It’s Cockney rhyming slang… she’s in a right old two’n’eight (state)… a drink too many. Have heard that a few times. I spent many years living and working in London and a fair part of that in the East End. Those days were wild, slightly chaotic but exciting. My business name is a throw back to this hugely fun part of my life! Now a mum to 3 lively & characterful children, life is different, still hectic but enjoyable.

Your opinions and ideas are important to me so please get in touch. susie@2andeight.com

I am happy to create custom packs. Dip dyed pegs in your favourite colour? A coordinated range for a special event; Wedding, Birthday, Baby Shower?! I’d be honored.

Thanks for reading.
