Designer Maker: Ursula Hunter
Surface Design and Textiles
Little Axe was established as a printmaking practice in 2013. I make Block printed designs for wallpapers and textiles using bold and colourful imagery inspired by natural habitats. The lino block designs are carefully researched to combine rare and indigenous flora and fauna with symbolic elements that create a sense of narrative.
My block printed repeat patterns and motifs are digitally printed within the UK onto good quality natural fabrics including Scottish woven linen and heavyweight cotton and silk. We make a range of bespoke luxury products that are all hand sewn locally in Scotland. The range includes hand printed wallpaper, soft furnishings, silk scarves and bags.
I have an expanding collection of designs featuring Scottish Wildlife and endangered species and have also produced a more exotic series inspired by the Spice trade routes to the East Indian Islands. There are 6 designs featuring Sailing ships rolling seas and spice plants. A new collection of designs will be launched in 2017 celebrating the plants and fruits of the Lombardy Region in the Italian Alps.
Little Axe offer a bespoke service making products that are totally unique and handmade in Scotland by skilled artisans.
