A-Z of Pattern: A is for Animals

I can smell the sunshine on it's way, and so it's time for a little Spring clean around here, starting with a new feature I've been thinking about. So welcome to the A-Z of Pattern! A grand name I'll grant you for something which I'm not pretending will be exhaustive, but I thought it would be fun to take a look at the many types of pattern that exist, and show you some great examples on the market at the moment. So without further ado...

I'm not talking about going all Pat Butcher (RIP) on you here, though leopard print certainly features, but take a look at the many ways you can incorporate animalia into your life. And who doesn't love a giraffe?

Don't forget most papers come as a fabric pattern too, and nearly always in a range of colourways, so don't make up your mind too quickly...

Printed with the pet’s skeleton on top of its silhouette in a varnish of the same colour, the skeleton shouldn’t show at night – so it’s not too scary when the lights are out. But it catches the light during the day when all the spooks are gone. Perfect for the small boy who likes to pull the wings off daddy-long-legs. Karkulaiset by Marimekko
