Cactus Restaurant
Cactus Mexicanos Wallpaper
(Price above is per sample - please email us for the full pricelist.)  This design is the culmination of several years Dr Susy Paisley spent living in, and besotted with, Mexico. 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. The design includes the Chisos Mountain hedgehog cactus, hallucinogenic Peyote, a critically endangered dragonfruit, which forms the long tendrils in the design, and lesser long-nosed bat (an essential pollinator for cacti) and the iconic saguaro and crested saguaro cacti.

Tree frog silk scarf
Rabb’s fringe-limbed tree frog silk scarf
A delicate and detailed design with hand-drawn illustrations on slate grey with flashes of magenta, burgundy, greens and yellows. It is of an elegant neckerchief size: 60cm2. This vibrant silk scarf commemorates the Rabb's fringe-limbed tree frog and species with which it was found in the Valle de San Anton of Panama. This extraordinary species, which was declared extinct on September 26, 2016, could sail through the air, change colours, and had an incredible way of providing snacks for its tadpoles. To learn more about this species read my blogpost. For every scarf purchased, £20 goes to support the Amphibian Survival Alliance.

Complete repeat of the Madidi Clouds pattern
Madidi Clouds Linen
(Price above is per sample - please email us for the full pricelist.)  The Andean spectacled bear, a mysterious and endangered species and inspiration for Paddington Bear, was the focus of Dr Susy Paisley's years of study in the Andean cloud forest of Bolivia's Madidi National Park. During long periods spent alone for her research, she became obsessed with the intricate patterns and color around her. Lichens, thin-lipped frogs, hummingbirds and toucans, along with her bears, were the subjects of my detailed drawings, and have formed the basis of this design. The composition of the design itself was inspired by a Josef Frank design from 1938 called Anakreon. His design was based on a 3,500-year-old fresco, discovered by a friend of Frank's, from the palace in Knossos on Crete.
