introducing 'elements'

I'd like to introduce you to some new friends we call 'elements' that now feature along the selvedge of our printed fabric.

Carly and I thought it would be a nice new idea to mark the history of our label Umbrella Prints so that our (design) journey can be followed as we go.

You will find a tiny charm-like Fanflower, a mini Elephant, a bite-sized heart and a twig from Bird in Paradise (all elements from our main fabric designs) hand printed onto our selvedges and in chronological order.

There is plenty of opportunity for future design elements to be added so we had better get cracking and make some choices about our next direction.


  1. What a great idea. Should i buy 6 metres of selvige-edge?(for all the little cutenesses).

  2. little cutenesses was my second choice of name for these ha ha! Thankyou x

  3. really nice idea! It looks beautiful to see it together in one line..
