Nature-inspired fabrics

I am absolutely in love with this Kew collection of fabrics inspired, as name suggests, by stunning Kew Gardens. I first saw the Ivo prints at Decorex International, while I was looking for some fabrics for my new project due to start in January 2015.

We will be using the scarab bugs fabric for the kitchen doors curtain which will open to a newly formed patio; scarab bugs are representative of the biodiversity of nature, symbolic of hope and restoration of life in ancient Egyptian culture. Scarab fabric is available in more than colour, so if you’re looking for more contrast, you can choose red scarabs for example 🙂

Another beautiful print is Mariposa, inspired by butterflies. There are approximately 52 species of butterfly that generally occur in Britain during the summer months. Butterflies can be seen as natures equivalent to a ‘canary in a coal mine’ scenario, reflecting the health of the environment.

Skyscape is another very special design as it depicts the magical freedom of flight.

Another reason for buying these fabrics, apart from that they’re absolutely stunning, is that every purchase supports Kew’s important science-based conservation work.
