The inspiration behind our September prints

Early autumn is a magical time to be roaming Cornwall’s green and pleasant land. We always make time to go foraging and gather edible Cornish delicacies to try at home. From shore to hedgerow, the pickings are usually rich.

Our September prints feature warm colours and textures lifted from jams, sloes and berries combined with earthiness taken from vegetables, mushrooms, charred wood and seaweed, creating a palette that’s perfect for this time of year.

Elderflower print

Creating this design brought back lovely memories for Sophie of collecting elderflowers from local hedgerows with her mum and auntie before making elderflower champagne. A combination of lots of little potato prints and sweeping brush marks gives this print lots of texture and movement.
