A while back I was shopping in York and found two wonderful stores called The Imaginarium and The Yorkshire Soap Co. If you are ever in the area you should definitely go, they sell some fantastic and very unique gifts. The shop designs are beautiful but the other really great thing about them is that they display the work of Mister Finch.
Mister Finch is a craftsman from Leeds with no formal training just a great natural talent who loves creating and sewing. He combines dusty pastel shades and antique detailing which then results in the most amazing textile creatures as shown below.
He layers up textures, dyes and inks with embroidered details.
Don't panic these parrots are not real!
