Back in the summer of 2014, as well as designing the poster for Port Eliot Festival, Emma was asked to create a bespoke tea cosy for the Flower & Fodder show at the festival, sponsored by Fortnum & Mason.
We worked on a design using the Amazon and Tigris illustrations combined, with appliqué stitch on printed silk and cotton, quilting and detailed embroidery to highlight areas of the print. Other designers who made their very own special tea cosies for the festival include Stephen Jones, Manolo Blahnik and Jasper Conran.
The shortlisted entries (including our Jungle Tiger design) are currently on display at Fortnum's, as well as online, and are being auctioned in aid of the Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust.
We think our tea cosy is perfect for a fierce afternoon tea... If you think so too then you can bid online until Monday 13th July. What are you waiting for - it's time for tea!
