Hello! We are Pip and Luis, husband and wife team who run Cactus and Moon from our little home studio in Bristol. Luis does the actual screen printing, making the screens and also does the fulfilment of orders and post office runs. He also runs the website, building it and maintaining it. Now he's also honing his pattern cutting skills. Pip works on the social media side as well as coming up with some of the design ideas and hand lettering. She has also worked hard with Em on developing The Perfect Tee (TM) so that it's the perfect flattering fit. Em, from The Homeless Button Society, is our great friend and talented seamstress who lives round the corner. You can often find us swapping pieces on the school run! She works hard on patterns and working her magic on the overlocker. We also indulge our obsession for organic fabrics together.
We started off screen printing by hand on to baby tees when our eldest daughter was tiny and our business has evolved along the way. Over the years we've honed our printing skills, making a conscious choice to perfect our hand printing skills rather than move to a more automated process. We truly believe in the inherent beauty of the handmade process and that true uniqueness comes with each print that's slightly different each time. You can find out much more about the design, our obsession with organic, fair trade fabrics and our commitment to sustainability on Our Products page.
We're really pleased that you've found us and hope you enjoy having a good look round our website.
