Bren Sutton, Company Director - Ink & Brayer

Welcome to Ink & Brayer!

Hi, I’m Bren - a New Zealand-based designer. 
My online store, Ink and Brayer, is a unique curation of design focusing on exquisite prints, patterns and weaves, but I also offer a personal touch if you are taking charge of your own design projects and just need a little help rather than taking on a full interior design service. Ink and Brayer specialises in cushions, textiles, wallcoverings, drapes, and floor rugs. What you see in my online store is a mere glimpse of the extensive selection of premium goods I can offer my customers through Auckland's finest textile houses.

The company is born out of my passion for surface pattern design. I believe there is much joy in pattern, colour, and tactile weaves and that these details add inspiration and texture to our homes and lives. Carefully chosen design can soothe, uplift and energise.

I am influenced by my unique design experience. I am a pattern designer, illustrator and product designer, but earlier in my career I worked as a traditional Disney animator. During my time as a special effects artist I fell in love with organic forms - particularly those in nature. I continue to be captivated by beautiful illustration and pattern. I appreciate traditional artistic mediums, strong graphic shapes and striking colour. A distinctly Japanese aesthetic of simple elegance is also a recurring theme in my curations.

At Ink & Brayer the tactile quality and fine details of a product are extremely important. Great design paired with quality workmanship and materials makes my heart soar, and it is this positive energy that I wish to bring into the homes and interiors of my customers and clients.

I love connecting with my customers, and welcome enquiries. I can help source textiles for soft furnishings, and facilitate custom-made cushions and drapes. I work with an industry expert in window treatments and has accounts with Auckland’s top textile houses. If you love the Ink & Brayer aesthetic, please get in touch! I would love to help you create an inspiring space that brings you joy.

Ink & Brayer can help with:

SOURCING: I can help you find the right textiles, wallcoverings, and floor rugs for your home or business.

CUSTOM MAKE: Consult and custom make of cushions and drapes in your preferred fabric.

STYLING CHOICES: Sometimes it's just too hard and you'd like some advice or a second opinion. No problem! No matter how small, I can help.
