A superb collection of exuberant designs lavishly embroidered on to pure linen or silken grounds.
‘Carisbrooke’, ‘Cymbeline’, ‘Devereaux’ and ‘Boscobel’ are all loosely based on the legendary ‘Tree of Life’, with fantasy blooms and branches gloriously captured by an array of different needlework stitches.
‘Silwood’ and ‘Somerford’ on soft silken grounds are finer examples of the art and ‘Larkhill’ on a robust linen recalls the charm of naive crewelwork.
‘Amesbury’ adds another dimension with a contemporary take on a traditional paisley.
Two radiant silk stripes in both relaxed, cool neutrals and luscious, vibrant colours are the perfect partners to all these designs.
