Caterham Design Co.

Hello, and welcome to our studio!

We’re Caterham Co., a handcrafted stationery + paper goods company that absolutely loves celebrating all of life’s special moments with paper + ink (and a few snarky sayings thrown in for good measure).

Based in the little town of Cradock in the Karoo, Eastern Cape our stationery design studio is run by graphic artist Catherine Dawes.

We believe in the beauty of the small moments, the rushed times and the lingering memories that you’ll never forget. We believe in coffee, the texture of paper, and the vibrancy of paint and ink. Dancing in the studio while painting, laughing while creating something pretty. Humming while packaging orders.

We do our best to bring all these beautiful moments together to celebrate and enjoy.

 Each piece is handmade by yours truly, and so slight variations are liable to occur. Orders will go out on the nearest Thursday after your purchase date. I'll send you an email with the tracking details as soon as I've sent your order. Subscription boxes are sent out in the last week of the month after launched or within the month on the nearest Thursday after purchase while that month's box is active. Unfortunately, back-orders are not possible.
