Pinyin Press

So you all saw Orlando Bloom in the baozi T-shirt on the news, right? Well, Pinyin Press has even more going for it than that. Sarah Armstrong founded her design label in 2014 and has gone from strength to strength applying her detailed hand-drawn illustrations, prints and patterns to a variety of homewares and gift items such as cards, tea towels, bone china mugs, melamine trays, hot water bottles, aprons and tote bags – and she's not finished yet!


Inspired by the things we all see around us as visitors and residents of Asia, Sarah draws baozi, bowls of noodles, crickets, lucky cats, to celebrate everyday vibrant culture and to capture the beauty of simple things.
