Kurt Jackson has generously donated a section of his printed textile to incorporate into a Francli design – this limited edition Kit Rucksack will be sold to raise money for the Friends of the Earth campaign ‘The Bee Cause’.

Environmental artist and activist Kurt Jackson has recently directed his talents to the plight of bees in this country. Inspired by the beehives next to his studio in the depths of West Cornwall, Kurt has created a body of work to share and support Friends of the Earth and their successful demand for a National Bee Action Plan.

Part of this section of work is a textile design from a unique process – Kurt cast a section of honeycomb in bronze that he then photographed and digitally manipulated into a beautiful yet haunting printed textile.
