SEASALT UNIQUE PRINTS

For every  collection, our print designer Sophie Chadwick creates an array of beautiful hand-drawn prints, all inspired by Cornwall. Each print is unique to us, you won't find them anywhere else. 

This month, you’ll find some really special designs, all inspired by Cornwall’s fishing heritage and busy harbour towns like Newlyn, Mousehole and St Ives. A delightful haul of subtle fish and harbour flowers.

NEWLYN SCENE

This lovely unique border print was painted by our designer, Sue Simpson. It shows a typical old Newlyn scene, with fishing cottages, boats, and fisherwomen chatting and mending their nets.

FISH GEO

These geometric prints were inspired by shimmering schooling mackerel. Sophie Chadwick drew textured fish using wax to create beautiful detailed lines and hand cut fish motifs in lino to make fun patterns.

Sophie Chadwick used shimmering fish scales as her inspiration for this quirky geometric pattern. We love the beautifully juicy palette.

SHOAL

Our print designer, Kathryn Fowler, was inspired by shoaling fish to create this quirky geometric print. We love the little flips of orange she's used on this design, and that the fish are only visible when you look closely.

WINTER BLOOM

We love the rich colours of these vibrant blooms, which were inspired by flowers growing in the window boxes of Mousehole - the prettiest of Cornish harbours.

LEAF LINES

Sophie loves the patterns and vein structures of beech leaves in autumn and created this simple but effective pattern using a potato print.

NEWLYN FLORAL

This beautiful, painterly floral print was created by artist, Kaye Treloar (Sophie's mum). After visiting Newlyn she was inspired by the flowers in all the tiny cottage gardens.

Inspired by autumnal leaf skeletons. Sophie created this beautiful print using hot wax and her tjanting tool, where the resist process creates a unique line.
