floral textiles: leanne culy for home base collections

I just found out about this stellar line of fabrics by artist Leanne Culy, for Home Base Collections. They use cotton and hemp yarns grown using no herbicides or pesticides that are fully biodegradable to create their line of fabrics. Great styling in the photographs as well. Photography by Brian Culy.

"Home Base Collections has created a range of fabrics inspired by the things we love about New Zealand. Icons we remember, things we had forgotten. Something pretty but not too pretty, feminine but not too girly, sometimes more masculine, thought provoking but kind to the eye, soft, beautiful & honest."

I'm loving the above two patterns, Rata and Magnolia Gisbourne, named for flowers. The Rata is a native New Zealand species, blooming red around Christmas time.
