Flower Power

While flipping through the latest issue of W magazine we came across new sensation Eloise Corr Danch, a Brooklyn based designer and artist. We can't help but appreciate the similarities between Danch's work and some of our floral oilcloth prints. Our Zoya Dark Blue print reminds us of the gorgeous colors and shapes of that Danch features in her various works.
