Herbarium Collection

Fern Favourites

Our new Herbarium scatter cushions are based on fern prints done by Thomas C Balgrave, an enthusiastic English botanist. In 1860, he recorded his findings on south African ferns in a comprehensive and exquisitely illustrated book. It is these photo print illustrations that are translated into surprisingly contemporary designs, while the grain of the original photographic paper adds a sense of historic allure to the pigment-printed linen.
