Giveaway from Formosa Designs

I'm so excited to kick off our Holiday Gift Guide with an awesome giveaway from Formosa Design. Formosa Design was founded in 2009 by Australian textile artist Jennifer Berney.  Her designs focus exclusively on Australian flora and fauna. Jenny uses high quality 100% organic cotton/hemp fabric to screen print with water-based inks. This means that the production process is undertaken in a environmentally and socially responsible way. She also sews the cushions, bags and purses herself. Check out her blog and her shop.  Her "Wren in Winter" tea towel would make a fabulous Christmas gift! Below are some photos of Jenny's studio and creative process.




Jenny is offering one lucky La Maison Boheme reader the gorgeous Lino-cut Blueberry Ash pillow cover pictured below.  She writes, "I was inspired to create this design after seeing the Eastern Yellow Robin hanging out in a Blueberry Ash tree while on a camping trip in Meroo National Park. Originally I cut the illustration from lino and made a print. I then turned it into a repeat pattern to screen print."

• 35 x 35cm (13.7x13.7in).
• Hand screen-printed and sewn.
• 100% ORGANIC cotton/hemp blend.
• Medium weight fabric (9oz).
• Overlap fabric back is black.
