The Inspiration Behind Our Latest Prints: Summer Days at The Hidden Hut

We love Cornwall all year round, but it becomes a place of unbridled magic during the summer. Glittering water, stretches of soft sand and wide-open spaces beckon with the promise of exploration and coastal adventures. Days spent rambling on the wild Cornish coast and sharing great food and good times are days well spent in our book.

The simple pleasures of  outdoor living and long summer days are woven throughout our latest collection. Vibrant, handcrafted prints evoke a sense of freedom and joy, while fresh sea blues and flashes of yellow conjure memories of campfires on the beach, watching the sun set over the sea while woodsmoke and chatter floats on the evening breeze.
