Squirrel rug for Node at Design Museum

I was delighted to be asked by the fantastic Chris Haughton to contribute a design to his Rug project Node.
Node was set up as a non-profit social business. They make high quality hand-made hand knotted, fair trade carpets and will be for sale in the Design museum as part of Fair Trade Fortnight. You might recognize Chris Haughton, as he is an illustrator and author of wonderful collection of children’s books… I Love them. – Oh no George, and A bit lost. see more here ttp://
here’s a few pics of my rug being made.




 It’s amazing how they make these images, I love this picture of the squirrels eyes emerging.  To see the final rug, they will be on show at the design museum as I have mentioned. see more events below.
