A celebration of the television programme, Detectorists. I was slow to the party, discovering this gem in lockdown and devouring it within a week. It’s a love letter to the earth, to our past and to the future, and just brilliant TV. I think Lance sums it up perfectly when he says that finding buried treasure is like time travel. It is a tangible link to our past directly from the hands of our ancestors. It’s an irresistible connection. From the Staffordshire Hoard and the Sutton Hoo gallery at the British Museum, to the Hallaton Hoard in the local library in Market Harborough where I used to live, I am bewitched by buried treasure. Not for the gold but for the human connection.

The border for many of my designs illustrates trees chosen for their associations with old customs and beliefs. They are Elder, Oak, Ivy and Holly. I have also included some of the phases of the moon.

The handkerchief comes with a matching blank greeting card and envelope, printed onto recycled card.

This handkerchief is sewn by me in Wales. The image is printed in the UK onto an untreated cotton fabric certified as 100% organic. The approximate size for each handkerchief is 320 mm x 320 mm. Wash at 30°

Each order is wrapped in acid free, unbleached tissue paper and includes a hand written thank you note. I am happy to address this to recipients of gifts at no extra cost. Just let me know in the notes when you place your order.
