My Basket Basket Icon

I’m James the illustrator and designer and I draw all the characters that you see on our products. I feel unbelievably lucky because I have always loved drawing and doodling and now it’s my job. Over 20 yrs ago I started Tyrrell Katz with a vision to create designs that were original and fun in their look, feel and attitude.

Along with my wife Lelia, business partner Nicky and our small team we have steadily grown the company but the core values remain the same.

We wanted to make kids accessories fun and interesting, and thanks to the wonderful feedback we get from our customers it seems we have succeeded in our mission to create a brand that is instantly recognisable and captivates children and adults alike.  We get lots of messages from customers who grew up with Tyrrell Katz and are now choosing us for their own children. This means a tremendous amount as we are a family-based business and all the hard work is our own.

From the very first moment every care has been taken to design and produce safe, practical and good quality products, that are also colourful, playful and fun. Timeless classics!

Our team all have children of their own (albeit some of them now in to their teens!) and they provide a constant source of inspiration to evolve and expand the range, as well as making an excellent feedback group with their free and frank opinions!

We now have customers around the globe and thanks to social media (and our tech wizz Ian) we can keep better connected to you all. So follow us and send us your ideas, thoughts, opinions, so we can continue to make products that delight!
