Whinberry & Antler design and print homewares by hand to create design led textiles and homeware inspired by heritage style and British wildlife.
Jacinta Walton set up W&A in 2011 and since then has developed its distinctive brand to create a range of exclusive products for the modern country home. A company born from a passion for drawing and wildlife, each illustration is hand drawn by Jacinta creating a truly signature look. The company name itself pays tribute to the Shropshire hills, home of the Whinberry, where Jacinta lives. Crafted entirely within the UK, the natural cottons are woven in Yorkshire and screen printing is carried out by Jacinta from her studio located amongst the Shropshire hills.
“As a little girl I’d spend hours drawing animals from books and exploring the countryside with my grandad, learning all about the different wildlife” – Jacinta
Combining a clean contemporary feel with traditional illustrative style, Jacinta’s drawings are truly brought to life with vivid detail and delicate expressions. From the iconic stance of the Stag through to the watchful gaze of the tiger, her prints capture the story of the countryside and world wildlife. Each illustration is then carefully transferred onto a silk screen before being hand pulled in black ink onto the signature natural cotton fabrics. The printed textiles are then transformed into a range of cushions, lampshades, tote bags and more by Jacinta in her studio.
