Creator of Babooche Calligraphy…
Hello! My name is Asha and I am the creator and owner of Babooche Calligraphy. I specialise in custom calligraphy, illustration and stationery for weddings, special events and small businesses. I am inspired by the sea and nature and my motto is “lovingly handmade, simple, natural and timeless”. Growing up by the sea and surrounded by British countryside, my aim is to bring a sense of fresh air and calmness for brides and businesses looking for simple design and elegant calligraphy. When I am not busy in the studio working on orders and creating new pieces with my beautiful tools, I love to travel and explore the world and learn about different cultures and people.
At Babooche Calligraphy we acknowledge that there are very few people that make their products with their hands. Machines and technology have taken over most of the world and at Babooche Calligraphy we are trying to hold on firmly to the idea and notion of all things ‘Lovingly Handmade’.
Our calligraphy scripts are written by hand, with ink that has been mixed by hand, on paper that has been made by hand and wrapped in beautiful silk ribbon that has been dyed by hand.
Babooche Calligraphy loves all handwritten calligraphy in adorable layouts and beautiful colours. We recognise and respect how important and rare beautiful handwritten calligraphy made items are to our customers. We have a strong passion for handwritten calligraphy and believe that adding beautiful lettering to greeting cards, wedding invitations, memory books and other cherished items will give that unique touch.
We strive to make items that are beautiful creative works of art to create memories and keepsakes for many years to come.
