Colours May Vary is based in Leeds and is an independent shop stocking a range of beautiful, useful and inspirational wares. We opened our doors at Munro House in November 2012 and we are proud to say we were the first shop in Leeds to focus on design publications. We moved to our new location in August 2021 and can now be found on the upper balcony of Leeds most beautiful building, the Corn Exchange. 

Our main focus is graphic art and design, typography, illustration, and product design. We stock a range of books, journals, prints, cards, gifts, wrap, homeware and stationery and we source our collection both locally and Internationally from a mix of established and up-and-coming producers. We try to bring things to Leeds that can't be found elsewhere. We also strive to support our fellow independents in the City. 

We have now relocated to Leeds Corn Exchange where we still have space for exhibitions. We also collaborate with designers and illustrators on a regular basis including pop-up exhibitions, limited edition prints and publications so if you have an idea and would like to chat, please drop us a line at hello@coloursmayvary.com



We believe in everything we stock. If we wouldn’t buy it ourselves we don’t stock it. Our focus is quality and integrity in both design and production.  From time to time we commission exclusive items and we try to ensure that they are produced within the UK using high quality materials by independent makers. 

If you don’t see what you are looking for on the site or would be interested in collaborating with us or supplying us, please drop us a line or give us a bell. We would love to hear from you. Please note that the shop is also our place of work so if you would like to share your work please get in touch before dropping by. We would love to see it but we are often very busy and prefer to set time aside for you where possible. 

We receive a large number of submissions and enquiries daily so please be patient as we may not be able to get back to you immediately. If you do not hear from us within 7 days however, you are more than welcome to badger us for a response. Please try to resist sending us samples of your work without checking in with us first.  

We are a small team and passionate about both our products and our customer service. We want your experience to be the best it can be. If you have any questions or comments at all please get in touch. We would love to hear your feedback!
