The prettiest things we have ever seen and the work of Helen Wilde, a Decorative Arts graduate from Nottingham Trent University. Helen has worked within the design world for many years with such brands as Harrods and Lush cosmetics creating products that use only the very finest of materials. But it wasn't until recently that Ovo Bloom was born, a brand that is the outcome of many years of designing, creating and growing.
Helen says" The products and contents of Ovo Bloom are where my true passion lies, this is me, this is what I love and I hope you love it too"
Hand embroidered blossoms sit on a layer of organza with pressed and preserved florals underneath, then sealed within the wooden hoop.
“The botanicals were picked and pressed from my own garden, sealed beneath the layers displayed within a window they create the most beautiful shadows.”
Part of the new hedgerow collection for 2019, A highly textured embroidery depicting a wild flower hedgerow scene, featuring Cow Parlsey and grasses.
”Hundreds of tiny French knots depict a classic English Hedgerow scene, embroidered on to a sumptuous cotton satin fabric that has been printed with a hedgerow image captured by myself, from the fields within the village where I live in Derbyshire, England.”
The design has been embroidered on to a cotton satin fabric printed with wild fern images, the flowers are foxgloves and the thread has been hand dyed using avocado stones, dying for longer periods to create that ombre effect. Several different brands of embroidery thread have been used to achieve the textural grasses, using satin, French knot and textured stitches.
Previous collections have been featured within Elle Decoration Magazine and The Guardian to name a few, and Helen was also presented the prestigious 'SBS' award by the British retail magnate Theo Paphitis in July 2015.
Ovo Bloom can be found on Etsy.
