Oscha’s Design Book: Shire™

Charlotte

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. all of which tells the whimsical tale of the Hobbit-hole.

Oscha's Shire Drawing

Our cosy scene is set between beautiful flowering borders, evoking the pages of a classic storybook. The Westfarthing was known for being the home of the beloved characters, Bilbo Baggins and Frodo Baggins, as that is where the village Hobbiton was located. This is a stunning pattern 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.

Our latest release, Shire Daisy is woven on a gentle buttercup yellow BCI organic cotton backdrop, this beautiful fabric radiates a soft, fresh feel making it perfect for spring and summer. The bustling Shire pattern is picked out in a natural white wild silk yarn.
