Exclusive Collection for the Fogo Island Inn

18 November 2015

You may remember, a few years ago Donna was asked to be part of the design team led by Ilse Crawford working on the interiors of the Fogo Island Inn on Fogo, a remote island off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada.

The island had around 2,000 inhabitants, and the population was dwindling. An amazing woman called Zita Cobb was born there, and after a successful career in Canada, she had decided to set up a foundation to create employment and to try to give local young people a reason to stay. She decided to create the Inn and everything from the building work to the materials, right down to the sheets on the beds had to be sourced and made on the island with the skills they had.

The Fogo Island Inn now a multi-award winning property built on the principles of sustainability and respect for nature and culture, as well as a social enterprise. All surpluses from the operation are reinvested by Shorefast Foundation for the benefit of the local community. What a great place, don’t you think? And it is just breathtaking. Take a look!

Donna is very proud to have been a part of this amazing project. Donna collaborated with the Winds and Waves Artisans Guild to create quilted cushion covers where the shingle outlines are the stitching patterns for the 100% lambswool covered cushions. Pictured below are the Bertha Chair and Pouffe in a guest room.

More recently, the Fogo Island Shop commissioned Donna to create a collection of three whimsical scarves and a luxurious limited-edition blanket. The scarves and blanket feature the now iconic shingle motif designed by Donna in 2011.

The shingle motif was inspired by the wooden cladding of the Brett House in the town of Joe Batt’s Arm on Fogo Island. The unique cladding is characterized by the imperfect and slightly wonky angles of hand-carved, repeated geometric shapes.

The scarves are available at the Fogo Island Shop, and on our website. The limited edition blanket is only available at the Fogo Island Shop.

The Fogo Island Shop is an initiative of Shorefast Foundation, a registered charity dedicated to improving the social, cultural and economic conditions on Fogo Island, Newfoundland. All surpluses from the Shop are reinvested by the Foundation for the benefit of the local community.

For more information about the exclusive collection at the Fogo Island Inn, please visit the Fogo Island Shop website or their Facebook page.

Creature Competition!

14 October 2015

Calling all Donna Wilson creature enthusiasts out there – we need your help!
We are working on new creatures for our spring collection and so far, we have developed a cheeky little chipmunk… but our chipmunk needs a friend!

Can you think of a new Donna Wilson creature, and tell us a little bit about who they are?

You may want to take a look at our current creature family to get an idea of the kinds of character traits they have. Each one has a personality, with likes and dislikes.

Please submit your suggestions as a comment below by October 28th (two weeks from now) and we will select a winner who will win their very own one-of-a-kind Mini Giant!

Feel free to submit multiple suggestions if you’d like, and this competition is open to everyone around the world.

We look forward to seeing all of your lovely ideas!
