Local textile design brand Handmade By Me has added a new collection to its homeware offering, entitled Fynbos Flower Fields.
The range consists of a series of photographic collages of the Western Cape’s indigenous flora and fynbos.
“Where I live in Cape Town, I am incredibly lucky to have Table Mountain sitting literally outside my back door, and I am always inspired by all the beautiful, colourful flowers that I see at different times of the year on my many walks around the area,” says Handmade By Me founder Sera Holland. “Unfortunately a lot of these flowers are too thick to collect and press, so I have created my own ‘digital’ version of a pressed flower artwork using a collection of photographs that I have taken on my various walks.”
A signed limited-edition art print, designed exclusively for the Design Store, has been transformed into a variety of homeware products in three different colourways: pink, yellow and green. The Fynbos Flower Fields range features trays, wallpaper, fabric, placemats, coasters and greeting cards.
Fabric and wallpaper can be ordered directly through Handmade By Me. For more information, visit handmadebyme.co.za.
