This delicate little painting was made thousands of years ago on a cave wall at Sevilla in the Cederberg Mountains, northwest of Cape Town. A few years ago my friend the cartographer and rock art enthusiast, Peter Slingsby, opened my eyes to the beauty of these ancient drawings, and his faithful records of them formed the basis for my brand new Sevilla Rock range, finally back from the printers!
If you keep an eye on my shop, you’ll have seen Herds design (above) before, as it’s been around for a while on cushion covers, as a kind of advance scout for the rest of the Sevilla Rock range.
I’m so excited about this, but at the same time, having all these running metres of fabric gives me simultaneous thrills and chills. Thrills, because I’ve been wanting to get this range printed ever since I started these designs four years ago, and chills because I have so much of this fabric and have to get my act together to find people to buy it!
Anyway, here it is, in all it’s glory. I’ve listed it as tea towels in my Etsy shop, and aprons, cushions and bags will be following soon.
