Flower Press : Social Enterprise

Artist Ella Phillips has been working with community groups for over 10 years. Dedicated to using art in a socially engaged way, she established Flower Press Social Enterprise in 2014 with the support of an incredible team of volunteers. Using art & design, commissions and interactive workshops, she aims to generate funds which can assist women who have experienced human trafficking in their own personal development.

Our products prioritise sustainability, transformation and quality. With our online presence we hope to share new skills with you and raise awareness around the issues of human trafficking. The designs for our cards are based on materials and stories relevant to our group. The cards have transformative qualities and in purchasing a card, you are helping women to transform their own lives. As the brand grows, so will the number of people we can reach. From employment opportunities to personal development, Flower Press contributes to new beginnings.

We are delighted to have your support!



We work with many different organisations to create products that are inspired by them. Please take a look at some of our collaborations with The British Postal Museum & ArchiveMary Ward Centre and The Calthorpe Project. Thanks to Volunteering Matters, we are developing our workshop portfolio & our teaching skills, in order to run free arts based workshops and give back to our local community.

We are powerful women. We have survived bad situations, we will show the world that we are people, not how they were thinking. We are winners
