New Australian Designs

Lots of new stuff in the shop including some gorgeous new stuff from the Aussie girls. Here are some of my favourites...






The last two are printed on hemp/cotton and 100% hemp. I'm madly in love with hemp at the moment. It has such a gorgeous textural quality, a little more earthy than natural linen, but every bit as sophisticated.
Interested in using hemp fabric? Here are some bits of trivia about this much-misunderstood fibre:
  • hemp is one of the strongest and most durable of the natural fibres
  • it's use dates back 10,000 years to the beginning of pottery
  • in Elizabethan times, farmers were fined for not growing hemp
  • it grows well without fungicides or pesticides and produces a significantly larger crop than either cotton or flax (linen) when grown on the same land.

Red Prints for the Red Room

Finally got around to putting together these little canvases together.

They're to go with these red bits and pieces...
