My new bumblebee design is out in the world, and this time it comes in organic cotton! This is my newest bumblebee illustration, designed to raise money for the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. It’s available as an unbleached organic cotton tea towel and original, linocut and monotype print on sustainable Nepalese lokta paper. Greetings cards will also be available soon.

The illustration shows all 16 UK social bumblebee species, along with some of their favourite wildflowers.

As with all my bumblebee prints, cards and tea towels, 10% of the sale price of these items will go to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust via Work For Good.
