Based in the lovely estuary town of Topsham, we design and make
gorgeous coastal homeware inspired by the tranquil scenery of the Devon Exe estuary.
Essentially, we are all about the birds. The eagerly awaited Avocets are a
central motif in our work, along with other frequent visitors to the estuary such as Oystercatchers, Curlews and Herons.
Stylised and slightly naive images of these beautiful birds are appliquéd onto fabric using free motion machine stitching, which gives the impression of softly drawn pencil sketches. We try to capture something of their essence and their distinctive features like the upward curved sweeping beaks of the Avocets and the elegant poise of the Herons.
Whilst the subjects may vary, the unifying element to all our products is the use of quality fabrics in soft sandy tones and dusky hues of blues, neutrals and greys, which complement each other perfectly and echo the colour palette of the Exe estuary with its characteristic red mud and (usually) calm waters.
