Saffron Craig: Banksia Bloom


Banksia Bloom is the newest GOTS certified 100% organic cotton collection by Saffron Craig for Fern Textiles. I know I’ve heard of these “kookaburras” and knew they were Australia-related but had no idea what they were, now thanks to Saffron I know they are birds that frequent rivers. The collection is also populated with Australian exotica like gum flowers and banksia trees. It’s an education, beautiful design, and sustainability all in one! The fabrics are available now directly from the Saffron Craig shop, and stateside by Honeybegood.

    Woohoo for an Australian themed print that isn’t quaint and old fashioned. Yay for the kookaburra and also the Banksia tree he’s sitting in. And blue too!!!! Yay for blue prints that can work for my 3 sons. And OH my these fabrics come from a company right here in my home town of Melbourne. Thanks SO much for highlighting this fabric.

    Too bad they’re out of stock @ Honeybegood!

    I have to mention the kookaburra & gum tree fabric at Utopia goods:
    I don’t think they sell yardage, per se, they sell finished goods with their designs. But I’ve bought poplin napkins & canvas placemats from them that I’m going to sew into some projects. It’s like nothing I’ve seen stateside.

  4. I agree with Cath – these are gorgeous and I’ve just bought a length of each kookaburra design to make cushions for my bedroom!

  5. Thanks for the lovely post Kim. We are really grateful.

    Just wanted to say – Kookaburras frequent backyards in Sydney (where I live) and other cities, too. They’d be familiar sight for many Australians.
