The Leaping Foxes story
Hand drawn by Liora Ives, the simple nature inspired designs are a product of happy days spent wondering along hedgerows and seashores all around the UK, camera in hand, enjoying what each new season has to offer. Aiming to bring modern coastal and countryside charm into the home, designs include some of the favourite wildlife characters from our shores – from puffins and bees to hares and foxes – as well as the beautiful seasonal plants that spring up in our hedgerows.
The joy of hand printing fabric:
All Leaping Foxes items are printed using traditional screen printing methods. Liora Ives, founder of Leaping Foxes, fell in love with hand printed textiles many years ago when she came across a block printed throw made in India which started her own journey experimenting with techniques from block printing to linocut, before finally settling on screen printing.
“I love the slow process of hand printing – forcing you into mindfulness (not my strength!)- but also the charm of the inconsistent results, meaning that no two items are the same. Many of my products are hand printed by me or for more specialist products by small British companies using traditional screen printing methods and its a joy be part of the hand crafted movement and to create items for people’s homes.”
