The ZPM Story.........
Useful and Beautiful......
My aim with ZPM has always been as Andy Warhol said to "let things that would ordinarily bore you suddenly thrill you" ! To make products that are practical, stylish and absolutely built to last.
Where do the ideas come from?
Most of the ideas spring from direct experience - either my own or people I know - do let me know if there is something we should be doing... For
example "Hanging Washbags Rolls" was built to solve moving regularly, being fed up with unpacking and having very little space! It is still one of our best
sellers. As I got older and life changed and three kids appeared I despaired of packing huge bags of nappies and wash gear for going away.
The "Nappy Pack" with all its great pockets and dispensing parts was born!
My latest invention is "Trolley-Dolly" - whilst standing in the kitchen surrounded by plastic bags
I knew I had to do something - It was a Eureka moment! By using Trolley-Dolly we can all do our part in banning the dreaded plastic bag!
I am constantly designing and sourcing new prints, I get my inspiration from old textiles, kids books, bits I collect on travels, things I see in the street, anything really! I generally bring out two
collections per year. If you join our Email newsletter we can let you know about them and any other news first!

From Backpack to Boutiques
In the early days I did all my sales trips on my moped with all the samples in my rucksack. The sight of me in a luminous yellow coat and helmet was enough to scare some lovely stores in to buying
our products. Liberty of London was my first stockist followed shortly by Heals, Harrods, Selfridges, Fortnum and Mason. Overseas you can find us in the likes of Printemps in France, Harvest Home in
Dubai and many other gorgeous small boutiques worldwide. If you would rather see the bags in person - so to speak - please email us at
firstname.lastname@example.org we will endeavour to
get back to you as fast as possible with the details of a stockist that is near you. If you are in a rush please call us on 020 34 22 30 77.
Why are we ZPM?
I get asked this a lot! My surname is Phayre-Mudge. It didn’t take long after starting up to realise that this was quite a mouthful and it was better to stick to just initials!
