Blinkin’ Imp is otherwise known as Lizzie Carins. Lizzie, originally from Newcastle, is a qualified textile designer who graduated from the Scottish Borders Campus of Heriot Watt University in 2003. After 10 years of experience in industry Lizzie returned to the North East where she began to promote the Blinkin’ Imp enterprise!
All the designs are inspired by the North East area, including town maps which feature outstanding landmarks and buildings. Local wildlife and animals are also a strong theme focussed on in the collection.
Lizzie Carin (AKA Blinkin Imp)'s Top North East Tourist Tip:
Go for a picturesque hike in Thrunton Woods and afterwards stop by the Running Fox bakery in Felton for a cake!
