The Jan Constantine vegetable collection is newly launched on the market and is brimming with brightly coloured hand embroidered items featuring, you’ve guessed it, vegetables!
The new set of designs by British textile designer, Jan Constantine, are inspired by the classic slogan, “Eat Your Greens”, and feature brightly coloured applique vegetables on contrasting black and cream felt wool. If you’re a discerning lover of vegetables, or wish your kids could be bigger fans, here’s a peek at some of the products currently available and the various messages and images they portray.
The Eat Your Greens wall hanging is the biggest piece in the Jan Constantine vegetable collection and boy does it make an impact! The piece is beautifully produced, with hand embroidered applique patches and a striking selection of vegetables. If you need to reinforce the idea of eating vegetables in your household, then this is a great message to hang on the wall!
Various vegetables feature as designs on the front of cushions in the Jan Constantine vegetable collection, including this distinctive bunch of radishes. Looking like they’re freshly picked from the garden, the radishes are made from patches of felt wool in cream, red and green. They’re shown off well by the contrasting black background and the theme is tied together by the green border.
As well as images of vegetables, some of the cushions in the vegetable collection feature slogans too, like this All You Need is Veg cushion. It’s a bit of a change from Constantine’s previous design, declaring All You Need is Love, but if you love veggies, then maybe you’ll agree with this message.
The cushions with black backgrounds are very striking, but we rather like the cream background of this Eat Your Greens cushion too for a slightly softer look.
You can check out the rest of the vegetables range on Jan Constantine’s website, where the pieces are also available to purchase.0
