Anybody with a passion for fine art, colour, texture and form would be delighted to receive a piece from the EJS collection, all of which are hand designed by Emma in London before they're transformed into the magical creations you see on the site. The craftsmanship and precision that goes into each step of the design process means you'll be gifting a special, luxurious statement unlike anything you can find elsewhere. Emma's designs are often directly inspired by artists such as John James Audubon and Ernst Haeckel, and evidence of this can sometimes be found in hidden details in the creations - a feature that any art lover would no doubt appreciate. For those of your friends and family who love art, our prints would be a fantastic gift as well - and don't forget that our silk neckerchiefs make wonderful wall hangings when professionally framed.
