Molesworth and Bird

Prints, cards, teatowels etc.

Long time friends Melanie Molesworth and Julia Bird formed their partnership a couple of years ago. Their aim was to create unique prints, cards and more from their own pressed seaweed specimens. Inspired by nature and their coastal surroundings their designs have already found a loyal following. Their successful limited collection of prints and cards have been featured in Homes & Gardens magazine, Ernest Magazine and The Saturday telegraph.

Julia Bird and Melanie Molesworth worked in London as interior photographic stylists for magazines such as Country Living, Homes & Gardens and Living Etc. and are both published authors. They have made it a mission to revive the Victorian hobby of seaweed pressing. Each piece of seaweed has been foraged from their local beaches and pressed in large wood presses between layers of papers in the traditional method.
