Immerse yourself in the flora of Woodfordia

Native flowers from across our site were chosen and hand drawn for the Wandering Woodfordia picnic rug. Click here to find out more.

The Wandering Woodfordia picnic rugs were designed by Australian graphic designer Sharnee Thorpe in a collaboration with her company Wandering Folk. Sharnee’s design process begins with an entangled mix of pencil drawings, ink lines, photography and painterly textures taking inspiration from her travels, favourite blogs and the world around her. She then explores seasonal colours and trends and combines these with hand-generated artwork and computer-aided designs.  This enables the development of creative original pattern lengths and placement prints.
