Fantails (Piwakawaka) are one of the darling birds of the native forests of Aotearoa. They are a wonderful companion on any bush walk as they dart around catching tiny insects.
In this striking design they are seen perched on branches of the corokia tree - the whimsical branches laden with berries.
Designed exclusively for Hemptech by Sarah Shepherd.
Having worked for over ten years creating textiles for film costumes, Sarah relishes the craft and technique of her work. Be it over a dye pot, print table or on the computer, for Sarah, the world of textiles and storytelling are inextricably linked. The whimsy, symmetry and surprise of nature is what inspires Sarah. Be it the mangroves rising out of the mud or the flutter of a fantail, this is where the ideas began. From their natural beginnings the ideas are then filtered through her paintbrushes, pens and hand strokes, ensuring they retain an organic quality. Imperfections are embraced as important elements in the perfection and beauty of the whole.
Printed on a light weight base cloth with a soft handle.
