A selection of John Derian postcards
- Wrappings by John Derian, Frederica, Wrap & Khadi
Bright burnt oranges, cerises, violets, scarlets and many more colours. We have chosen papers from all around the world – Indian Loktas, fine Bhutanese, soft Mulberry and Japanese Sanwa (flecked with silver and gold).
We mix them together with multi-coloured zingy sheets of tissue papers.
For the first time we are showing the quirky, divine John Derian wrapping papers- patterned, illustrative and good enough to frame. Give to those who appreciate beautiful papers, not throw away papers, but the ones to cherish and use again and again…
We have attached John Derian’s postcards to lengths of ribbon to hang from our mantle-shelf and from a jug of winter twigs. If you want to post one, we have made glassine envelopes, stuck down with a golden star. (We have tried every pen in the shop on glassine paper and they all work).
Ribbons– velvet, satin, grosgrain, twine & leaf
Cornelia O’Donovan’s screen has arrived. This is not just a four panelled decorative screen, but a painting like a Medieval fresco of foliage, flowers and many little putti – so exquisite.
