FABRICS - feena brooks for cloud9

Designer Feena Brooks will launch a new fabric collection with Cloud9 in May 2018. Called 'Whitehaven' it tells the story of an English summer with its vast skies, pretty meadows and gentle flowers. Inspired by memories of long summer holidays Feena had as a child, each pattern is named after a place in England that has a particular meaning for her and evokes a special memory. The colour palette is bright yet soft, giving a feeling of warmth and sunshine. Prints include Whitehaven (above) whose beautiful coastline and plentiful birdlife inspired Feena's pattern of freewheeling swifts. Devon's pretty meadows in high summer are depicted in Metcombe (below). Also look out for New Lane inspired by the plants and flowers laid out in rows on the allotments in her home village, Aynho Wier takes it's name from the Oxford Canal where pretty flowers are found on canal boats, and finally St.Bees stylises the bumblebees that filled skies of Cumbria during summer.
