Tracy Kendall wallpaper was one of the products that really stood out at Clerkenwell, for its originality and fun. One of the most beautiful wallpapers on show was made out of glistening chickens feathers, hand-dyed black and stuck onto the background paper in dense rows – just stunning! The photo I took didn’t do it justice and I couldn’t find a photo on the website -perhaps the product is very new. She had a selection of other lovely wallpaper on show, though, and this jigsaw puzzle paper caught my eye. A great way of re-cycling old puzzles- this would look good in a study or den.
