Gorillas in the wool.
This is Titus (of Gorillas in the mist fame) as drawn by Emma J Shipley, a graduate of London’s Royal College of Art.
Emma has worked with Camira Fabrics to create the Titus and Tangled collections, printed onto beautiful Laneve wool from New Zealand. Emma is known for her amazingly intricate and detailed line drawings. Her style has been described as “meticulously precise” and “astonishingly skilful and distinctive”.
Camira Fabrics are known for technical excellence and stunningly attractive interior upholstery fabrics. They are a team of highly motivated textile innovators with a social conscience. This is the same Camira who have worked with Wools of New Zealand to support the endangered Hector’s Dolphin.
This time Camira are supporting the Gorilla Organization, which works internationally to protect the world’s remaining gorillas in their natural habitat in Central Africa.

Camira have produced two designs from Emma Shipley’s artwork, both printed on Blazer fabric which is woven with Laneve wool (all traceable to our farms)
