"This Goldcrest design was inspired by the beautiful colours of this lovely bird that I see flitting in and out of the hedgerows. It's also the UK's smallest bird and so I wanted to create a design to celebrate those hidden details of our British countryside."
Jo created the original, handmade goldcrest design from her studio in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside. It was created using free motion embroidery, an exciting technique where she uses the sewing machine to 'draw' the details of the wildlife onto the fabric with the sewing machine.
This fabric is an excellent reproduction of the original embroidery. It is printed onto 100% cotton in the UK, along with everything in Jo's range of homeware.
A beautiful way to bring a little bit of nature into your home!
Proudly made in Great Britain.
This fabric is available in two scales:
Goldcrest and Goldcrest (mini)
The width of the fabric is 150cm with the printed width being 140cm.
Digitally printed in the UK using reactive inks. This method is kinder to the environment compared with traditional screen printing where dye can harm the environment. There is virtually no dye wastage with digital printing. In addition, reactive inks give superior wash and rub fastness, along with brighter colour yield and fabric softness compared with pigment printing.
