About us


Latin verb;

Established in 2013, Impressarum (formerly The Mere Gallery) in Bowness-on-Windermere, offers an exclusive collection of Lake District inspired organic cotton t-shirts, screen printed in the UK. Alongside t-shirts by other British designers.



 We also feature "Away With The Spoon" jewellery, Original Prints by British Printmakers, limited edition UK made Printmaker books, Printmaker cards and gift-wrap.



Helly here, creator of the independent clothing brand Impressarum and "Away With The Spoon" jewellery.

My idea behind the t-shirt brand is to share the spirit of the beautiful Lake District in a colourful, quirky and comfortable collection of organic cotton t-shirts. Many of the designs have a vintage 70's feel, inspired by my early childhood growing up in Windermere.

My jewellery incorporates my love of beautiful Victorian silver and environmentally friendly upcycling, which prevents the need to mine the earth for further silver.


Hope to see you soon x
