Printed patterns inspired by nature, stories and moments across a range of home textiles, gifts and cards.

Much of the inspiration for my prints comes from exploring the flora and fauna of our British countryside. The plants that grow on my balcony garden and the wildlife they attract also have a big influence on my work.

My prints often start with sketched ideas, which I then develop using lots of different disciplines including hand drawn illustrations, painting and traditional techniques such as lino printing. Once my designs are ready I work them into repeat patterns digitally for a range of products. My ideas are brought to life in a little nook in my Manchester home and all of my products are made in Britain.

After attaining a degree in surface pattern design, I worked as an in-house designer for a digital textile manufacturer in Manchester. This saw me work with a wide range of clients, from large high street brands to small designer-makers. The experience was invaluable, helping develop my creative confidence and giving me a strong understanding of commercial design. After beavering away on my own collections in my spare time, I decided to go solo at the start of 2017.

I hope you enjoy my work! I’d love a chat if you have any questions so don’t hesitate to get in touch via my contact page, or email me at natalielauraellen@gmail.com. Wholesale enquiries and commissions are very welcome also.
