The inspiration behind out latest prints: From Mousehole to Penzance

Buoyed by an expectant spirit, this time of year brings longer, lighter days that are flooded with the promise of warmer months ahead. Cornish fishing villages, like Mousehole, rediscover their gentle buzz as harbours dotted with colourful boats draw people along the narrow cobbled streets and down to the shoreline.

Our latest collection captures this sense of excitement about summer. Handcrafted prints pop with the juicy hues of sweet strawberries and lino-cut lemons in zesty yellow, while delicate floral designs and paper cut sailing boats lend pieces a bright and breezy feel.

Watch our print designers Sophie Chadwick and Kathryn Fowler talking about our latest prints in this short video.

Village Flowers

Riviera Dress - Village Flowers Marine

Pretty little flowers growing down by the harbour in Mousehole inspired Kathryn to create this sweet floral print.

Lino Strawberries

Kathryn’s intricate lino print of strawberry bushes captures the simple pleasure of fruit picking in the sunshine. These strawberries look good enough to eat!

Paper Cut Boats

This distinctive print was designed by our creative director, Laura Watson. Inspired by all the sails crowded together in Falmouth harbour, she used cut paper to craft this nautical design.

Window Box

Colourful geraniums bursting out of window boxes in Cornish villages inspired Kathryn to create this pretty floral print.

Bathing Beauties

A heritage Seasalt print, designed by Sophie Chadwick 10 years ago and back by popular demand. Retro-style bathing beauties swim across this eye-catching conversational print. Even underwater, these swimmers are stylish and elegant!
