Drawn from Nature
Seedlings Cards & gifts is a creative business run by Sarah-jayne Mercer, from her base in rural Herefordshire. Drawing inspiration from the natural world, her designs are charming and timeless, each illustration is lovingly created in Pen & ink by her husband Joel before adorning their products.
Their selection of plantable products feature wildflower seeds that once grown will help protect the habitats of native butterflies and bees.
After meeting on the Illustration M.A course at Falmouth College of Arts, Sarah-jayne and Joel have worked as both freelance artists and in-house designers creating images for some of the worlds largest brands. It was this experience that led them to consciously consider every element of their own business, from using sustainable British sourced materials to utilising time-honoured, traditional, and often hand-made manufacturing methods. This, they believe to be the ingredients of making products that are both beautiful inside and out.
