Nature is also a source of ideas for Speronella Marsh of Hare’s Tail. Block prints have been a staple of English interiors since the eighteenth century, but Marsh’s overcalled designs bring vigour to a traditional technique. A former plantswoman for landscape architect Tom Stuart-Smith, her prints - oak leaves, sea weed - originate from rural rambles. The hand-carved blocks are stamped onto antique linen sheets on her dining table. For Marsh it was important her business was both “local and sustainable”.

Hare's Tail specialises in block printing on vintage sheets and fabrics which can be made into curtains, blinds, and used for upholstery. Each sheet is one of a kind due to its colour, age and texture creating a unique look. 

Hare's Tail is a wonderful independent company who has exhibited at many of the same fairs as us this summer and we've really enjoyed getting to know the founder, Speronella. She shares our passion for sustainability and local production, all the fabrics she uses are up-cycled and all designing, printed and created in Shropshire where she lives.
