Welcome to The Colour File

I’m Martha Roberts, journalist, mum, ardent second-hand rose and avid collector of colourful objects – many of them ‘found’, preloved and, in many cases, no longer wanted. Except by me.

I take these little bits of colour and arrange them so that they look beautiful again. The result? A range of products, from prints and jigsaw puzzles through to tea towels and coasters, showcasing these things in all of their multicoloured glory. Find them on my Etsy shop or find me ‘in the wild’ at local fairs and markets.

Join me on my colourful adventuring – creating, curating and gathering up stories from one end of the rainbow to the other.
