The Story So Far

Fern Green Designs is a small business, established in late 2021 in The Netherlands.

Starting Out

In late 2021, I opened my very first online business, ‘Fern Green Designs’. 

This was the culmination of years of dreaming about opening a business, and the COVID pandemic gave me, like many others, the push needed to turn dreams into reality.

Since starting this business, I have learnt a huge amount about every aspect of running an online business. It certainly hasn’t been an easy process! 

Priorities and Interests

My priority was to make sure that anything I made, sold, or packaged, was as kind to the environment as it could possibly be. I’ve worked hard to make this happen, and I will continue to aim for this as a standard.  

Nature has always been a huge part of my life, having grown up in the UK with the Lake District on my doorstep. When I first started Fern Green Designs, this was obviously quite an influencing factor and it led me to creating designs that were mainly nature-based.

But...I did always feel that there were other influences and interests that were pulling me in other directions. 

New Direction

So, here we are in the early part of 2022, and it is time to let other interests come to the fore. I’ve always had a huge interest in Gothic tales...stories which began in the late 18th century, and continue to this day. These tales of dark, eerie churches, castles with secret passages and abandoned, overgrown gardens, have always felt comforting! So, this will be the new direction for Fern Green Designs.

I also felt that focusing on sustainability had led everything to look green and brown! While I'm continuing to create beautiful things as environmentally friendly as possible, I know I can make them look, and feel, a little bit more luxurious and interesting!

What Can You Expect?

I will still be creating embroidery designs, making flower & leaf art, and providing sustainable gift wrapping...but the designs will look and feel very different! 

It’s a big change for me, with a brand-new website, new colour palette, different designs, but it really does feel right! 

I’m lucky to have a very supportive family who help me out with so many aspects of running ‘Fern Green Designs’.

I hope you enjoy the new website and products!
