Mercia Voines Grass
Mercia Ribbons Natural
Mercia Ribbons Linen

This pattern shows English species suggested by the imaginary species in Dr Suess’s The Lorax. It is organised in an ogee pattern, made of ribbons. They are reminiscent of the double helix of the DNA that determines how we all turn out, every living thing, and of chain link fences, and breaking through them to get out into nature.

The humming fish are represented by great crested newts, the precious truffula trees are clover flowers whilst the playful barballoots are the red squirrels. The bees which also feature in a companion print are short-haired bumblebees – a wonderful conservation
success story as they were extinct in the UK but acres of flower-rich meadows were planted in Kent, the bees were reintroduced and are now thriving. Other flowers include several species of clover, Pheasant’s eye, crested cowheat, Stinking iris, whorled millifoil, Carthusian pinks, Herb Paris, wintergreen and blossoms of a rare old English breed a apple. Great great grandfather snail is the lagoon spire snail (thought extinct, but recently found in Chichester harbour)

Companion prints include Mercia Vines and Mercia Bees, featuring details from this larger scale design.

Paisley Paramecium Linen

(All colours are available on both basecloths and also at both scales, although we may not offer that specific sample. If your combo is not available, we suggest ordering the colour you want to get the process started.) 

Paisley Paramecium is a textile and wallpaper design celebrating the web of micro-organisms that forms the base of the pyramid of all life. The inspiration for this design was a play on the traditional tear-drop shape of the classic paisley motif resembling a unicellular organism called a paramecium. The species in this design are aquatic, including many free-floating plankton upon whom the health of all marine creatures depends. Phytoplankton are also of serious conservation concern – warming oceans have caused population declines of 40% since 1950. Change is desperately needed in how we perceive our interconnectedness within, and dependence upon, the web of life. As well as evoking droplets of water as well as using the conventions of the paisley design. It is also reminiscent of stitching and lace, as the fabric of nature is fragile and intricately interwoven and embellished. The colouration is quite free, and can be further expanded upon in the future, as many of these species are really transparent.

To learn more about the design, please check out the blog post.

Tree frog silk scarf
Rabb's fringe limbed tree frog 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.
