Surface Pattern Inspiration

 

Neutral tones, rich texture and organic shapes.

I almost set off without a camera in the pouring rain but look at what a wet woodland walk can offer by way of inspiration for designers, artists and photographers!

Edge of the Meadow Silk Floral Scarf

A whimsical garden…

A walk through an English country garden  inspired this limited edition silk scarf. There was something very magical and whimsical about the garden that I wanted to capture in this piece. A silk wrap, perfect for adding a vibrant touch to a tailored suit or dress. Think wedding, opera or garden party. When it is opened out to the full length of 200cm, the symmetrical layout is striking and drapes gracefully around the shoulders. Habotai silk is luxurious, extremely light and warm making it an elegant alternative to a cardigan ( with a dress ) or chunky scarf ( with jeans)

Spring to the Edge of the Meadow

Spring to the Edge of the Meadow

Our double sided cotton  scarves lined with chiffon, allow you to accessorise well into spring, wrapping up for cooler days, or adding a bright accent to an outfit.Each print is carefully designed with a lot of attention given to the overall composition so that it shows off the print to the max when it is worn.

The exclusive one off print makes it a unique,  luxurious gift, or a special treat for yourself. Below is a collage of pictures revealing a glimpse into where my inspiration came from…mainly the glorious Hampshire countryside.

A Culmination of Cultures

Here are a selection of pictures I took on a recent visit to India. When I design print & pattern here in the UK, I like to look at the elements of nature at work, for example light, texture, shadows and reflection. The photos below however, confirm that my bright colour palette is inherited from the motherland!
