The ‘North Island’ collection is a group of six cushions, digitally printed with eco dyes on hemp/organic cotton and framed with charcoal hemp/organic cotton piping. Molly was an artist and naturalist who travelled around early last century staying with friends & family in the North Island of New Zealand carrying her watercolour set and sketchbooks.
