Happy Festive Season!


With the last print of the year, the last pillowcase and the last cushion all done, we bid adieu to the studio and Florence for the holiday period. Thank you everyone for all of your support this year, what an amazing year!

We have lots planned for next year, and it all kicks off in February. A collaborative project at the NGV, the 2012 Food and Wine Festival, our shop opening, it’s a massive start to the year and we can’t wait to get started.

We’ll be back on board Wed 18th Jan. See you on the flip side!

'Bird and Bush' Teepee by Leila Sanderson

Bird and Bush Teepee by Leila Sanderson for Greg Hatton Designs
We're just a little bit excited about Leila Sanderson's new teepee for Greg Hatton! Leila is such a talented lady, her original hand drawn sketches form the basis of the teepee printed panels. A few months ago, Leila popped into the studio with a bevy of beautiful hand drawn motif's.

There was all types of flavours, from deco all the way to whimsical. After the motif to form the basis of the design was chosen, it was transformed into this amazing decorated panel based around Leila's idea of the design fading upwards.

The teepee is made from a beautiful organic canvas with printed panels on both sides and a little printed pocket inside.

Greg Hatton is having an open day up at the Newstead Butter Factory from where he and Leila work THIS SATURDAY AND SUNDAY!  There will be teepee's, willow chairs, and all sorts of other assortments of furniture.
