This year Umbellifer will unveil two new Christmas ranges at Home & Gift, with 10% of profits going to Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.
Owner/designer Stephen Lennons explains: “The Wildlife Trust is a wonderful organisation that looks after more than 2,300 nature reserves in the UK. Its work is essential in preserving wild spaces and improving biodiversity in a way that means all of us can still access it and enjoy it. It’s never been more important to preserve and improve these natural spaces so that they are still there for future generations.’’
Umbellifer will also be exhibiting a new range of 12 cards called Songbirds & Seedheads, which is already proving very popular, and is a bit of a change of style direction. A sign of things to come maybe?
The everyday botanical ranges continue to expand and Stephen has added a Bluebells design, a card showing the connection between the Small White Butterfly and Red Campion, and a card called Three Poppies, which celebrates the beauty of the unmistakeable red Poppy.
