About Thefty


Playful patterned homewares & stationery with an edge.

Thefty was dreamed up by Helena Maratheftis while she was at university studying... biology! While most would-be-biologists don't end up becoming designer/illustrators, it came as no surprise to Helena as it is her obsession with colour, pattern and form (as well as her curiosity) which unites her love for art and science.

The result is Thefty, where Helena designs products which punctuate your homes with vivid jolts of colour and bold, maximalist motifs. Helena's inspiration comes from varied, sometimes unexpected (and often scientific) sources.

The name Thefty is a nickname derived from Helena’s surname (Mara-THEFT-is). Nothing to do with thieves, you'll be pleased to hear.
