Butterflies & Bamboo
Discover butterflies amongst painted bamboo leaves in this light airy repeat, with hidden depths.


This design has a refined and handcrafted feel to it due to the painted bamboo and butterflies. Hidden behind the foliage are Chinese influenced type symbols; creating depth within the pattern. The design was influence by bamboo being used as screens and makeshift walls. Within a garden, it's a screen provided by nature- move the leaves aside and you may reveal a hidden shrine.

Why does your design stand out?

The bamboo shoots leap from the design due to the contrasting background. It is a lot more simplistic in colour; focusing on different shades within the leaves. It isn't 'pink & girly' so would suit those who prefer less florals as well as women of a mature age. The purple colourway features feminine utopian shades, appealing to a more youthful market. The colourways add warmth to the design for the transition to autumn, whilst the painted imagery adds charm.

Which kind of brands do you imagine using your design?

Brands such as; Mango, Monsoon, AX Paris, Forever 21, Cameo Rose, aswel as brands such as M&S, Debenhams.

Is the design 100% created by you or is there anything we should know about any third party material used?

All design material and models are my own.
