Emily Dupen-Hopkins (Dupenny)
Entrepreneur: Emily Dupen-Hopkins
Dupenny designs and produces exquisite wallpaper and homewares with a refreshing twist. The inspiration for Dupenny's designs comes from all things vintage, retro and cheeky.
Dupenny designed plates.
Dupenny designs are initially hand-drawn in ink before being finalised on a computer. Wherever possible Dupenny chooses to hand screen-print their products because it ensures that no two items are identical. The items are each subject to variations in print, and even minor imperfections. But this is what makes them beautiful and unique. Dupenny likes to call this 'Imperfect Perfection'. Although their manufacturing methods are quickly evolving to keep up with high demand, Dupenny never compromises on the quality of their products.
