This embroidered art (11.5cm x 9cm), featuring my original design, comes in an A6 presentation card containing the natural history and cultural symbolism behind the species.

✨ Connects you with nature

✨ Teaches you amazing facts about the natural world

✨ Starts fun conversations with friends

It’s colour fast, so it won't fade.


This art patch is intricately embroidered and is designed to be mounted on a hard or stiff surface.
🍀 To frame or mount on a book cover, you can use double sided tape or glue.
🍀 To attach your patch to fabric, like a canvas bag, flag or stiff jacket, I would recommend stitching, or using fabric glue. You may find the latter easier and you can get glues that are resistant to washing, if you want to wash your bag or jacket. The patch is machine washable and colour fast if you do choose to wash it.

How they are made

The gatefold presentation cards from each patch are printed in the UK on uncoated stock made from 100% genuine de-inked post consumer waste and FSC® certified. Made in an industry leading mill to strict ISO 14001 standards for environmental management, it is chlorine free (PCF) significantly reducing water contamination from processing.

I collaborate with a well-established UK company that partners with a small family-run factory in Ganzhou, renowned for its commitment to ethical and environmental standards. This partnership ensures safe working conditions, protection of workers’ rights, and the use of certified, and where possible, recycled materials. The factory, founded 16 years ago, is now strategically located near the homes of all local employees (very unusual in China), and benefits from a stable, well-compensated workforce with 50 employees. This close-knit approach fosters not only high-quality production but also a deep commitment to ethical practices.
