Fawn and Thistle

Taking inspiration from nature, the animal kingdom and storytelling, Fawn & Thistle create a range of products featuring their intricately drawn illustrations. Aiming to carry on the British tradition of eccentricity, they like to add a dose of whimsy and humour to the designs, creating beautiful and unique imagery.

Products include greeting cards, giclee prints, wedding stationery, homewares and accessories.

Fawn & Thistle aim to be as environmentally friendly as possible, using recyclable material and eco friendly production methods where viable, with all products designed and made in the UK.

Fawn & Thistle was founded in October 2013 by illustrators and long-term friends Kirsten McNee and Sangita Southgate, who - having once sat together in art class in school - are now running their own business out of their studio in Faversham, Kent.
