A BIRD IN THE HAND
Rapture & Wright hand-prints its own designs to order in its studio in Oxfordshire, and this Doves pattern, reminiscent of the 1930s, is one of its most memorable creations. In crisp single colourways, the vibrant red and soft grey versions suit a clean-lined kitchen with bright whites and warm, natural woods, ceramics and woven materials. Complement them with bird-themed accessories
