We love the textures and sights of Sussex so much that we’ve launched a new brand – Specially Sussex – to promote products that capture the area’s unique beauty.
Our first range is a series of five different sheets of wrapping paper with matching tags made using specially commissioned photographs of a flint wall in Slindon, beech trees in Arundel Park, bluebells in Binsted Woods and tulips and clematis in Arundel Castle Gardens.
The stationery – printed locally and on eco-paper – is on sale at the Book Ferret on the High Street in Arundel and will be sold online soon. (ish!) Take a look at how it came together here.
beechtobeach Director Jane Mote said:
“My co-director and I had an idea about doing this five years ago as a way of showing off the amazing textures of flint, chalk and the natural world of Sussex. Its very exciting to see the project happening. I hope people will enjoy taking a bit of Sussex home and wrapping it around a present to make it extra special.”
“Textures really tell a story about the hidden beauty of a place. I wanted to get up close to the detail of what is all around us here in Sussex. I’m very pleased with the end result.” said photographer and videographer Joshua Kershaw.
