found: nancy straughan
One of the things I love the most about writing a blog is how many creative and talented people you meet; I originally started the 'found' series to showcase artists, makers, photographers and bloggers that I thought really deserved a bit of time in the spotlight. A couple of weeks ago, the amazing Nancy Straughan emailed me to get in touch about her textile and paper designs; the first thing I saw were the words 'eco-friendly' and 'sustainable', closely followed by some pictures of her work, so it was pretty much love at first sight!
Working from her small flat in London, Nancy set up her homeware company in 2013 after completing a degree in Printed Textiles; she now spends her days designing and producing beautiful fabrics, home accessories, art prints and stationery, which are sold through her website and several independent stockists. What I really love about her work, though, is that every stage is done with the earth and environment in mind; all base cloths are natural, organic and sustainable, prints are digitally printed with eco-friendly inks, and all paper products are made using recycled paper.
For more information or to make a purchase, head to Nancy's website, or follow her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
