The Avalana Collection at Robin Sprong

WORDS Michaela Stehr

Local wallpaper and surface design brand Robin Sprong has launched a new collection by Manchester-based design brand Avalana.

The new range, created by Hazel Carruthers, the artist and designer behind Avalana, is inspired by nature, folklore and travel.

“At Avalana, it’s all about creating truly stunning, hand-painted designs for boutique style interiors,” says Avalana on its website. “Each print is designed to encapsulate the extraordinary beauty of our natural world and seeks to inspire a sense of wonderment and escapism to the viewer.”

Avalana features an array of ink and watercolour designs, each of which is initially sketched and hand-painted by Hazel before being digitally translated into wall murals.
