Lichen & Leaf specialises in quality hand made block-printed fabrics. All fabric is printed by Cynthia Edwards, a print-maker and slow fashion enthusiast.
Every design is hand drawn onto Lino which Cynthia then carves into the 'stamps' to create the beautful patterns you can see in all her products. She is inspired by the nature that surrounds her - "I like working that way, looking around and taking a lot of photographs. I like drawing inspiration from the world around me and turning it into a pattern."
Born from Cynthia Edwards' desire to create beautiful, functional pieces of art, Lichen & Leaf is developing new ideas, designs and products continuously. Having launched in December 2014 with a few simple pieces and prints, the range of products is growing steadily.
The 100% cotton fabric that Cynthia uses for all her designs is sourced from a local supplier in Zimbabwe and other than a local seamstress located in the same building as the Lichen&Leaf studio, Cynthia hand prints all her items herself.
