Introducing our new Middle-earth pattern: Shire. Our designers have spent the last two years studying descriptions of The Shire and developing the design in order to capture the essence of the Hobbit homeland.
This amazingly detailed pattern features the iconic circular doorway of the Baggins’ home. This homely scene evokes the pages of a classic storybook as smoke rises from warm hearths and well-tended gardens teem with life. This is a stunning pattern which tells the whimsical tale of the Hobbit home.
This design has been a labour of love: bringing together the lore from the world of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, and Oscha’s unique aesthetic to create this stunning Shire pattern. There have been many hand-drawn iterations perfecting the layout of this intricate design before we were happy inking in every tiny detail for the final version.
Set on the autumnal tones of our Mallorn fade these colours tells the tale of Cormarë – ‘Ring Day’. The day of celebration for Frodo held in HobbitonTM in late September under the party tree – the only Mallorn outside of Lothlórien.
A beautiful fade of deep green through gold and autumnal hues, our Mallorn colourway is named for the sacred Elvish tree which Galadriel brought to Middle-Earth and planted in Lothlórien. The leaves of the Mallorn trees turned from green and to gold and remained on the trees through autumn and winter, while golden flowers bloomed in the spring and summer.
