Expressing design ideas is the best fun. Yet it’s something we often shy away from for fear of being judged (Instagram take a bow!) or just because we don’t feel we are ‘good enough’ or have the practical skills needed for drawing, making, writing or whatever it is we are actually longing to do.
eatsleepdoodle was created so that everyone could have the opportunity to experiment with their design ideas in a way that was totally reversible. So goodbye (just a wash in the machine) to those plans or drawings that didn’t work, and hello to a fresh cotton ‘canvas’ for developing the good ones!
As well as being a great design medium, our textiles to colour and design with wash-out pens also offer the relaxation and enjoyment that can be found through mindful – and mindless! – colouring and doodling. However you choose to use them, all eatsleepdoodle products allow children and adults alike to indulge themselves with colour and pattern; whether you see yourself as innately creative or not, this is such a fun way to let your imagination inspire you.
And textiles to design yourself also make everyday things more fun. A tablecloth you’ve customised with your guests’ names and the menu just makes the celebration that much more special. It also encourages interaction between generations as you sit round the table and enjoy colouring and writing together. Our products allow an escape from a bustling world of screens and remote connectivity, bringing individuals into the present moment to produce something fun, exciting and rewarding! And the bonus is that each eatsleepdoodle gift has a practical everyday function, too.
It’s a simple concept – we provide the blank canvas, you provide the brilliance! What’s more, because the ink in our pens disappears completely on a warm machine wash, your imagination can run wild over and over again!
The best meal-time treat for kids wherever they are – on a train, plane, at Granny’s or in a restaurant – is our meal time fun placemat to-go. Waiting for food? No problem – out comes the placemat ready to be decorated with what you’d like to eat or your favourite meal. Perfect for keeping hungry kids happy at the table. Best for kids in a big family: it’s ‘ownable’! - each comes in its own little cotton bag complete with pens.
Ideal for any young would-be interior designers - the home decorator pillowcase is all ready to colour and add your own touches and themes to – there’s lots of space for extra furniture, people and personalising! Turn it over and you can become a garden designer too. So why not choose a different colour scheme or era every week?
Great gift ideas for school are the doodle backpack and pencil case. They’re ideal to personalise and add to on the school run, in the classroom, wherever they please! And so useful for jotting down things they need to remember and all the inventive ideas that are so much part of childhood.
There’s absolutely no age limit to our doodle duvet, pillowcase and tablecloth. Doodle tablecloth is brilliant as a brainstorm meeting tool – companies from Google to international law firms and NHS teams have found them invaluable. And doodle duvet came entirely from a lightbulb moment thought about encouraging reversible design – now it is a perfect late-night resource for all those thoughts you need to catch before the morning!
Research into emotional wellbeing shows there’s every reason to break out of routine and get doodling. With Christmas just over the horizon, eatsleepdoodle creative gifts make for the best and most nurturing Christmas presents for children (and adults too, of course!) Begin your doodle journey over breakfast, dinner, in bed… whenever you like! There are no rules, anything goes. And if you’re feeling brave, share it with us!
