Nature lover and author Claire Garland has studied animals and birds in the environment around her home in rural Cornwall, and designed this delightful collection of patterns based on the wildlife she sees there. The patterns are cleverly designed to with the same markings and colours as their real life counterparts, making them irresistible. The striking photography enhances 'wildness' of the animals and captures the magic of spotting a wild animal in their natural habitat.
