We love to tell you about our products, of course, but we also love to show off the design talent behind all our prints and garments, homewares and accessories!
Lotty uses her island home of Mustique as the muse for her nature-inspired prints. Here we look at the journey from Lotty's earliest pencil sketches and how they are translated to our various fabrics and designs.
Seahorses are very shy creatures but can sometimes be seen in the waters around Mustique. Lotty drew this pencil sketch and this formed the basis of our "seahorse" print:
The next step in Lotty's process was to paint the original sketch in ink:
Our screen printers made a beautiful job of transferring this print onto our shirts and dresses in linens and silks, plus swim shorts - although we are currently out of stock of linens and swim shorts. Lotty created the "repeat" print for garments which you can see on these examples below:
A section of blue "seahorse" repeat print on a linen shirt.
In blue on green for our quick dry swim shorts.
This is a section of a silk crepe-de-chine sarong with the design handprinted in pink onto pale aqua blue.
This is a silk chiffon kaftan - Lotty's prints also work well on this delicate and flattering fabric.
We love using the "seahorse" print on our gift cards too!
Recently we introduced a range of upholstery and drapery fabrics for the home - UV resistant and water resistant woven polyester - suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Here is the "seahorse" print on the drapery fabric:
The fabric is sold by the metre from our showroom and is available in other prints and colours. We can mail to you, should you wish to purchase. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7193 7525 for more information.
