Why we love this product

Its all in the detail

The design of this madras is very close to AUTHOR's heart. Using motifs from the grounds of AUTHOR's Georgian manse headquarters, textile designer, Iona Crawford, has incorporated cherubs from the nearby church into the design of this madras. The chubby, plump cheeks of the cherubic face is repeated throughout the design have an emotional connection - reminds you of home.

A carved, lichen covered, centuries old head stone sculpture that has been translated into a soft, translucent, light, airy contemporary design that by no means is threatening or scary. Bespoke just for us makes it all the more interesting and special. 


What our customers say...

"We required a business gift to be sent to an associate as a thank you. AUTHOR procured, beautifully packaged and delivered the gift with a lovely hand written note. It was done seamlessly and professionally and was so easy, I wasn’t even in the country! I would highly recommend them if you ever required a gift service."
