Cactus Mexicanos Collection
This design is the culmination of several years Susy spent living in and in love with Mexico and a recent return trip this summer. It celebrates the incredible diversity of Mexican cacti. Mexico is one of the world's centre of endemism for this group of plants, and includes marvels like the Creeping Devil, a cactus in this design which actually moves across the desert floor! Cacti are enjoying a new popularity, but globally, one out of three cacti is in need of conservation attention.
Cactus Mexicanos is offered in six colourways, as wallpaper and as printed linen.
The English Mercia collection:
The English Mercia collection is a tribute to one of the greatest conservation parables ever written, The Lorax by Dr Seuss. The designs are based on real species extant in England (in the realm of the ancient kingdom of Mercia) that relate to the imaginary species in the Lorax. The humming fish are represented by great crested newts, the precious truffula trees are clover flowers the playful barbaloots are the red squirrels, whilst the Lorax himself is the nightingale, pleading for the preservation of the ancient woodland. Ancient woodland is a critical conservation priority in England, as 98% of the centuries-old forest has been destroyed. Learn more about this Award Wining Design.
This large scale English Mercia print above is available with background colourways of Neutral, White, Slate and Deep Blue. This main design is joined by the following complimentary prints:
Madidi Clouds Collection
The Andean spectacled bear, a mysterious and endangered species and inspiration for Paddington Bear, was the focus of my years of study in the Andean cloud forest of Bolivia's Madidi National Park. During long periods spent alone for my research, I became obsessed with the intricate patterns and colour around me. Lichens, thin-lipped frogs, hummingbirds and toucans, along with my bears, were the subjects of my detailed drawings, and have formed the basis of this design.
Madidi Clouds is available in Natural, White and Midnight background colourways. It is offered as a very large print (full width repeat), and a large print (half width repeat).
