Win: A luxe writing set from Cambridge's Sleepy Bee




To mark the launch of the range, Sleepy Bee Studio is giving Velvet readers the chance to win a premium Afternoon Tea writing set - worth £27.95

As author Henry James said: “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” That’s the inspiration behind the latest stationery collection at Cambridge’s Sleepy Bee Studio, launching just in time for next month’s national Afternoon Tea Week.

“We love the timeless elegance of this thoroughly British tradition,” explains designer and illustrator Charlie, who quit a career in buying to start her own brand with graphic designer husband Gavin, “and so we illustrated a series of teapots, cups, and cakes to bring together a new theme for those that love their stationery as much as their tea!”

To mark the launch of the range, Charlie is giving Velvet readers the chance to win a premium Afternoon Tea writing set - worth £27.95. Housed in a blush faux-leather pouch, it includes 18 writing sheets (luxury FSC® certified Tintoretto Gesso in off-white), six envelopes (made in soft blush by G.F. Smith) and a rose gold ballpoint, all gift wrapped in Sleepy Bee’s signature printed tissue.

For your chance to win, email your name, address and daytime number to alice.ryan@velvetmag.co.uk, titling your message ‘Sleepy Bee Competition’. Entries should arrive no later than July 18 2021 and the usual Ts and Cs apply; if you’re happy to be contacted by Iliffe Media and its partners, add ‘Please contact’.

“If you’re looking for a beautiful gift for a stationery lover, then this premium afternoon tea writing set is ideal,” adds Charlie, “or alternatively treat yourself and then make someone’s day by taking the time to send them a letter.”
