New Tropical Palm Leaf Tableware

New Tiki Palm Leaf Placemats and Coasters

It's here! Our new tropical palm leaf design ... lovely succulent greenery just in time for Spring! And as always, we've added a retro spin: a palm leaf print on a bamboo background because we just adore mid century Tiki style! We love the vibrant greens and textures in this design and we think the placemats will add a lovely tropical vibe to your dinner table .... and the coasters maybe just the finishing touch you're looking for in your home Tiki bar! Both are a great way to protect your mid century teak surfaces from those scary coffee cup rings and minor spillages!

As often with our designs, these palm leaves started out as a sketch, then a watercolour painting, before being scanned into the computer for further digital work.

Once on the computer, we tried the leaves out on various backgrounds ... all of which we liked, and it took us a while to settle on the finished combination. You never know the other combinations may well make an appearance further down the line ...

For now we have launched Tropical Palm Leaf as coasters and placemats, but we are also experimenting with other applications for this design ... if you have any suggestions, or if you would really like to see this design on more products, do drop us a line and we'll see what we can do! Our printed products are always customisable ...

In the meantime, if you want to bring in some 'island time' to your dining room, or add some Tiki vibes to your coffee table, you can find our Tropical Palm Leaf placemats and coasters in our homewares section, or click on the image below.
