Our organic natural cotton tea towel features a Jersey cow from our herd here at Taw River Dairy. Illustrated in a lino cut design by Dartmoor artist Marielle Ebner-Rijke. Beautiful quality and packed in completely recyclable materials our tea towels make a wonderful gift or the perfect practical present for yourself. Made in the UK. Machine washable, iron safe.
Marielle Ebner-Rijke is an artist and printmaker living on the edge of Dartmoor, inspired by the animals and wildlife around her. Marielle has produced a series of hand coloured linocuts, a technique that she enjoys as it enables her to create a small edition but the hand colouring ensures that each one is individual and that the colours have a good variation of tone and vibrancy.
Our handmade paper contains wildflower meadow seeds. Once your note has been read, the paper can then be planted where it will grow as part of your flower garden. We have produced five different designs including two illustrations by Dartmoor artist Marielle Ebner-Rijke and three photographs by Matt Austin, a talented local photographer, of our own cows and produce.
Simply plant your card under a thin layer of good potting compost and give your card a good watering. The paper can be planted indoors or outside, so you get to choose according to the temperature and conditions at the time of planting.
All the cards are left blank inside so they can be used for any occasion. Our greetings cards are packaged in biodegradable sleeves with a biodegradable sticky label. We are always happy to handwrite notes and post your cards directly to the recipient for you. This service is available as an option on our online shop at no extra charge.
