Marianne North was a remarkable Victorian artist and botanist who travelled the world, breaking conventions and discovering new species of fauna and flora.
Over her 14 years of global travel and adventure she created 848 paintings and even documented species that were not previously known to science. Our latest range with Kew has been curating using inspiration from their archives and samples of Marianne's painting which we have been given exclusive access to by Kew.
A percentage of every sale from this range goes towards the vital work carried out at Kew into climate change research, conservation and preservation of natural habitats.

Tips - From Me to You
I absolutely love the designs the sisters from Sheffield come up with. This collection is beautiful coming from the archives of KEW Gardens.
Please be aware that the Sisters do two seasons and when a new season arrives you won't be able to get the previous season - so don't delay, if you click it, buy it.
Beautiful to look at and amazing to wear, they feels like silk, its that luxurious - however as its a natural product it doesn't catch on your fingernails or pet's claws. Its my ideal travel companion as its so light weight and packs away perfectly.
