Old Rectory

My love of illustrations of flora and fauna is something that I inherited from Bo my Grandfather.  When we weren't out rambling across the hills in Lancashire on our summer holidays I could be found on Bo's knee looking at one of his many botanical books.  I loved the intricate detail and inky coloured sketches that are as clear to me now as they ever were.   When I saw the debut collection from Old Rectory the illustrations reminded me of happy times.  Sisters and founders Joanna and Stephanie Sloan grew up and lived in Co Wicklow in Ireland  before following their own creative paths.  Joanna specialised in interior design whilst Stephanie completed an MA in print design at The Royal College of Art in London. Combining their talent and experience in 2010 they launched their children's label Old Rectory.  Inspired by their grandfathers own childhood nature sketch books they have given 20th century wood block styled prints a contemporary feel with oversized images and a fresh colour palette. 

Using organic materials and Oeko-tex certified dyes all everything that Old Rectory produce is toxin free and safe for babies and the environment.
