About

I’m launching an eco-friendly British-made homewares brand made from recycled fabric and organic cotton.

I am an artist, illustrator and graphic designer based in Somerset, England. I have a cosy office filled with pictures, butterflies and art supplies which inspire my work. For company while working: my 11 month old daughter, my two cats, my cockapoo pup and last but not least Gordon the Goldfish. 

I love creating colourful and vibrant designs which highlight important environmental issues. My focus on sustainability throughout the entire production process, right through to delivery, is the antithesis of the disposable, throwaway fast-fashion culture that I want to avoid. Everything I print on is either organic or recycled and I use no plastic.

For this kickstarter campaign I am launching an eco-friendly range of brand new illustrated  cushions and reusable napkins both made from a 100% recycled fabric and organic cotton. 

They feature designs of animals whose habitats are all being harmed by the farming of palm oil — the orang-utan, the green peacock, the Sumatran tiger and the clouded leopard.

These homewares are designed for people who enjoy fashion and interior design but also care about the environment and want to buy considered products with low carbon footprints, using sustainable fabrics.

GREAT ARTICLE! The Guardian states:

"The ability to recycle fabric is, say industry veterans Adrian Jones and Graham Ross, a “holy grail ... for the industry and the planet” that will help close the loop between resource-intensive fabric production and fast-growing piles of textile waste." 

If I am successful with my Kickstarter, I will officially launch these products (and several other designs and homewares I am currently working on - follow me on Instagram for updates -  with a stand at the Spring Fair show at the NEC in Birmingham, England, in February 2020. Supporters will receive the items they have pledged in August 2019.

To finish this project I need your help! The funding goal covers the minimum expenses to help launch my sustainable homewares. 

I am offering backers a limited edition signed print that won't be available any where else, as well as exclusive access to these hand-made, eco-friendly cushions and napkins at a lower price before they hit the market.

Thank you and get in touch if you have any questions!

Bespoke illustration examples:

Having a bespoke illustration is a really fantastic thing to own. I have illustrated a huge range of personalised pieces for clients including: family pets; childhood homes; holidays; favourite animals; marriage venues and more...

These illustrations are an example of what you could have:

FUTURE PLANS:

I plan to release at least one new design line each year (always with an environmental focus). I will also expand the product range to include more homewares, such as tea towels, bed linen, wallpaper, etc… (always sustainably manufactured and delivered).

I’m passionate about the environment and sustainable living and want to make a difference to the throwaway fashion market we have ended up with. 

Risks and challenges

Creating new and exciting designs is challenging, particularly choosing the right animals to go on the colourful backgrounds but the biggest challenge so far has been sourcing eco-friendly printers and fabrics. I have spent hours researching materials and where I can get the products made, each time a new problem arose - replacing the zip, printing the label, getting sustainable fabric that actually looked good too and didn't spoil the vibrant colours I try to achieve with my illustrations. Not only all that I am also a new Mum (with a 9 month old daughter) and have a dog, two cats, goldfish and my husband. All while working as a freelancer. I have a lot on my plate but I am very passionate about this project.
