The Story
The Summer sun was setting and I could see the russet hues of the late evening sky reflected on the quiet waters of Strangford Lough. A Jay swooped down onto the woodland floor surprising me with a flash of blue and black in its wings. As I walked on through the wood I came to a wild garden, overgrown and bursting with hydrangea blossoms - each bloom seemed to glow as it was touched by the sunset colours of the fading light.

The Collection

Vibrant colours and patterns inspired by the landscape of Northern Ireland compliment each other in April's Lough Cuan Collection. Inspired by April Mawhinney's pencil illustrations and the heritage of the Irish linen industry, this glorious collection of fabrics and home wares are printed within the UK onto linen fabric.

The Fabric
