Our collection of butterfly wing and dragonfly print fabrics are all a delight of garden birds, simple florals and butterfly wing prints. Butterflies exemplify the beauty of nature with their extraordinary symmetry, of shape and pattern. They symbolise flight and freedom and also nature’s fragility.

The timeless design, Cow Parsley, shows small simplistic butterflies sitting on the heads of the quintessential English wildflower Cow Parsley. Again, Vanessa has a slight obsession with spots and stripes, which are ever evident on the delicate wings of British butterflies. Cow Parsley is a simple two coloured print, where the butterfly is in a contrasting colour. This helps to complete the decoration of a room by offering another colour option for the trims, leading edges, cushions, borders/piping, and even upholstery.

Next is the Flora and Fauna design which has larger more detailed and painterly butterflies, fluttering around stems of stylised flowers.

Song Birds features all the good things that I love in meadows around us – foliage, blossom, butterflies and birds. It is inspired by the many branched ‘Tree of Life’ illustrations used in science, religion, philosophy, mythology and the decorative arts.

The Fern and Dragonfly design is a one colour print and gives a room a really simple Scandinavian atmosphere. Dragonflies and damselflies are shown flying amongst the various fern shapes and provide the same excitement with their long, delicate wings.

These butterfly print fabrics come in numerous colours from the gentlest soft blues, greens and greys to stronger saffron yellows and Damson pinks.

These Quilt butterfly print fabrics are printed on Linen Unions, an organic cotton and linen mix. In addition, a lampshade made from one of these butterfly materials would be great focal point in a room, as would a chair, cushion, and even a quilt. We can make all these especially for you as part of our Made to Measure service.
