Bethie Tricks Textiles Hepta Fabric
Bethie Tricks Textiles - Botanical Collection
This pattern is based on the Heptapleurum (commonly know as the Umbrella plant) which was growing in abundance in the atrium of the apartment block we were staying in whilst on holiday in south Africa, alongside the Xanadu Philadendron (Canopy design). Such a gorgeous mix, a real live plant party!
Thoughts from Bethie...
Creating my own patterns, however simple or complex, adding foliage and plants to my growing collection was always on the cards. I have taken inspiration from all over the world. My Jungle, Folio and Hepta patterns stem from my time in Cape Town and the plants we used to pass each day on our way back to our home stay. Some of the patterns were inspired closer to home, from local front gardens to my in laws flowerbeds.
