Designer Sophie Allport, who lives near Oundle, has just launched her exclusive Wimbledon collection.

She was commissioned by The All England Lawn Tennis Club to design a range of products including mugs, jugs, cushions, napkins, oven gloves, tea towels and aprons.

They are all on sale exclusively at Wimbledon over the next two weeks and can also be bought all year round from the Wimbledon Museum Shop.

The Strawberries and Cream fabric design is set on a white background and couldn’t be more perfect as a Wimbledon souvenir, capturing the quintessentially English appeal that is Wimbledon.

The fine bone china mug features tennis rackets, balls, umpires chairs and the winner’s trophies.

Sophie said: “I’m an avid tennis fan and used to work at Wimbledon when I was a teenager.

“To be commissioned to design an exclusive range is such an honour and we’ve heard its already selling really well which we’re delighted with.”
