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,ÿtextile designer, Iona Crawford,ÿhas incorporated cherubs from the nearby church into the design of this madras.ÿThe chubby, plump cheeks of the cherubic faceÿis 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.ÿ
