Folded Forest is the work of Ruth Viqueira and Sarah Peel. Together we design and make a range of limited edition prints, homewares and stationary, made by hand in our small studio in West Yorkshire.
We find inspiration in the natural world around us: the woodlands and moorlands of our home. We try to offer an imagined glimpse into these environments and the lives of the creatures inhabiting them…
Our designs begin as hand made paper-cuts and lino cuts. Layers are added with pen, ink and tracing paper, then exposed onto screens ready for printing by hand. Screen printing allows us to carefully choose and layer colours and to print onto all sorts of interesting surfaces, from beautiful papers, to linen fabric and birch ply wood.
Our aim is to design and make products that people feel a connection to; products made with care from high quality materials that will be treasured and enjoyed for years to come.
