As soon as I began the work on our new textile collection several years ago, I started hording away any and every image that inspired me. Even without thinking of a clear path to its usefulness, they began to litter my pinterest page and the bulletin boards in our offices. Sometimes it was just a colour. Sometimes the interplay between colours. I even found a posting from late 2013 - although somewhat cryptic - that was actually some early scheming for this collection.
So . . . enjoy a wee peek behind my creative process . . .
This almost feel Druid. Which always makes me happy.
I think I've had this tucked away for YEARS . . .
One of my clients collects vintage automobiles - so these images are always kicking around
Verdant Scotland is always a good place to begin thinking . . .
So what did this all turn in to you might ask? Just a little tartan that I named after my grandfather - and one of my favourites from our new collection . . .
Now that everything is beginning to settle down a bit - I'll try to bring you more of the inspirations behind many of our new textiles.
