This week, my Flower Dreams fabric collection is launching, and I’m so excited to share the centrepiece of the collection, which I’ve called Wild Flowers.
Wild Flowers is a large-scale two-colour screenprinted design that manages to be lots of things at once: It’s a bit Japanese, it’s sweetly feminine, a little Folky, a tad popp-y, and just a little bit mad!
I came up with this design after I made a fun vinyl sticker wallpaper to brighten up my studio bathroom (see pics in my blog post about it here). I’d been wanting to make a large-scale floral print for a while, and suddenly it struck me that my bathroom ‘wallpaper’ was just the thing.
Wild Flowers is professionally screenprinted here in Cape Town, using waterbased ink on a cotton/linen blend basecloth. It’s available in four colourways: Strawberry Humbug, Lemon Humbug, Strawberry Plum and Lemon Plum.
