Seahorse Theme

May 28, 2016

I have only seen one seahorse whilst snorkelling on Mustique, just outside Basil's Bar.  It was about 1 inch tall and I could so easily have passed it by.  It didn't look much like my sketch but was nevertheless the inspiration behind one of our 2017 themes:  Seahorse.

I was aiming to create a paisley effect as the shape of the seahorse tail is so reminiscent of the typical paisley print.
We have used these initial sketches to work up into repeat prints for linen, swimming trunks, bikinis and even furnishing fabrics.  I can't wait to show you more but am waiting for the first strike-offs to arrive back from the printers!
