Founded by Davina Schluttenhofer in 2018, Hofer translates from German as ‘farm house’. And Schlutte ‘the valley’.
Handy given we’re nestled at the edge of one, albeit in the Garden of England.

It’s a long way from the comp room of the Royal College of Art. Here Davina studied  before the grind of 20 years in the design industry.

Escaping the city, we found ourselves next door to the former home of Charles Darwin. Daily walks through his glasshouse. Orchids and the buzz of bees. It was here we returned to the love of drawing and nature.

From monstera to mangetout, cherries to carrots, we nurture our love of nature through print.

Hofer draws and hand-prints. We take on commissions, create greetings cards, prints and ephemera.

Like any good farmer, we have invested in heavy machinery,
a Swiss-made FAG cylinder proofing-press. The machine lets us print with vibrant precision, coupled with the quirks and beauty that only letterpress printing offers.

The press, however, has her limits so, we’ve now branched out to create super-sized versions offering beautiful A2 and A1 giclée prints.

Aside from giclée, everything we do comes from the valley, reducing our environmental impact. Our inks are 90% salvaged, stock FSC-certified and packaging compostable.
