Corners of Cornwall at Home With Whistlefish
Whistlefish is synonymous with Cornish adventures. From the classic map print tote bag to framed harbour art and an array of beautiful greetings cards for any occasion. The artwork at Whistlefish moves beyond the traditional scenes and highlights all the corners of Cornwall for me. With those special locals secrets like the coming home trees and a highlight of anywhere that is special to you, from city streets to the coast path. Seasonal blooms and special moments; the pieces highlight everything I love about our County.
The lovely team recently offered to send me a few pieces from their Travel collection and I opted for these two. I wanted two representing different sides of my Cornwall. The Cornish Lines represent the peace and tranquility from endless evenings watching the waves and the surfers embracing the tide. I also went for the St Ives harbour print. They have the most beautiful collection of harbour artwork and St Ives is so quintessential Cornwall. The tropical waters, golden beaches, cobbled streets and winding alleyways.
St Ives is also a very special place for Whistlefish, being their first location for a shop bark in 1997. Whistlefish really is a brand with heart and soul, having been founded by a lady Lyn, creating in Cornwall since 1996. Since 1997, Whistlefish has been connecting busy, caring people to friends, family and places, with sustainable, unique cards, gifts and art.
The Whistlefish website perfectly describes the impact they have. ‘Supporting others is something we are truly passionate about at Whistlefish. It’s why greetings cards are at our core; we believe small acts of kindness can make all the difference to someones day. From The Prince’s Trust to animal-related charities, the items you purchase help a varity of good causes. Green Matters is at the heart of everything we do. Every day we continue to work creatively to reduce our impact on the environment from recycled cards to replanting trees. Because we produce our cards and art in Cornwall, we can control our production line and create small batch, delivering lovely prints at even lovelier prices with a reduced carbon footprint.’
Fill your home with artwork, the joy that each piece can bring you from highlighting fond memories, taking you on an adventure to creating calm in a space that requires you to feel your most zen.
