I’m working on a collection of patterns inspired by my trip to South Africa (in 2012) and I’m in heaven reliving these memories. Eric and I traveled to SA on our honeymoon and just had the most incredible time. We flew to Cape Town and over the next 3 weeks we drove along the coast, stopping for a few days here and there along the way.
Our first stop just outside of Cape Town was the Garden Route Game Lodge. It was breathtaking. We learned so much about the wildlife, conservation efforts, and environmental concerns in SA and we drove on safari every morning and evening through the land.
At the game lodge we had a stand-alone room, which was located in an area open to many (but not all) animals - and at night I could hear the zebras rustling in the bush just on the other side of the wall. So, it’s fitting that my first print in the collection was inspired by those zebras & the golden light of South Africa.
I loved making this pattern - it felt like it just poured out of my soul. I hope you enjoy it too <3
