Handmade and handprinted work inspired by the natural environment. Selling prints, cards, cushions, bags and much more
Hello! This business is run by mother and daughter team, Eleanor and Holly Mulinder, based in South Essex. Eleanor is a born and bred Scott, with a degree in graphic design from Glasgow School of Art and currently works as an art teacher. Holly is in her third year of university studying environmental science. We decided to take the plunge and start an art business together near the start of 2021 after years of mulling it over.
Our inspiration comes from the natural environment. We start by creating detailed sketches in pen, this is then transferred onto a lino block where we carve out our design using special cutting tools. After this we ink up the block and press it onto paper or fabric to print the design. From this we create prints, cards, cushions and tote bags. With plans to start creating table runners, tea towels, napkins, lamp shades and the list could keep going! Recently Holly created a reduction print of a small tortoiseshell butterfly where 10% of sales go to charities that help to conserve these beautiful insects.
Head over to our website to see more of our work! We also write blogs with more information about us, our processes and things we do to remain an eco-friendly business.
Thank you so much, and an early Merry Christmas from us,
Eleanor and Holly
