Local Knowledge: Leaping Foxes Design

Hello, today we are exploring Leaping Foxes Design company, a local fabric design company based in North-Norfolk. Foundered by designer Liora Ives, who has had a long-held passion for textiles and traditional printing techniques from screen printing to block printing. After moving from London in 2017, Liora was looking for a slower way of life and so began creating a stunning range of textiles & homeware that reflected simplicity and calming lifestyle.

Textile designs are hand-drawn before creating a screen for printing and come in soft neutral colours making a modern-rustic interior style and a calm, relaxing environment. All designs are based on her own nature photography and inspired by long walks along the hedgerows of the Colne Valley in North Essex, Dedham Vale in Suffolk and the beautiful shoreline of Norfolk. Check out The Leaping Foxes Instagram page for inspiration here.

The company's new collection 'Delta" features the flora and fauna of the Okavango Delta plains of South Africa inspired by a trip to the area and captures the iconic animals and plants of one of the last great natural sanctuaries. The collection comes in soft muted colours of the dry season and fits with the enduring popularity of tropical patterns.

“The collection features statement designs with leopard and kudu antelope that are striking on cushions & lampshades, complemented by more subtle versatile designs that blend in beautifully in timeless classic colours including teal, eucalyptus and soft ochre. Inspired by memories of one of the most unforgettable and otherworldly places on earth, the collection will appeal to those who love an eclectic look as well as the ever-increasing number of us who want to bring nature and nature-inspired design into the home.”
