We love our dogs at HoneyTree and since we founded in 2008 we have always had a Dachshund as part of the team! Naturally they became the inspiration for many of Lizbeth’s illustrations and have proven to be very popular.
A few years ago Lizbeth was given a stunning napkin with a sausage dog on and her love affair with Emily Bond fabrics and homewares began. Knowing how our shoppers love a Dachshund design we contacted Emily – who is in neighbouring Bristol (a few miles from our studios in Frome) to see if we could bring her lovely designs to our shoppers.
As part of our competition to win a luxurious Dachshund Bathrobe we interviewed Emily about all things Dogs!
Do you have any dogs at the moment?
EB: Yes!! we have three totally spoilt, extremely loved Dachshunds who are much adored by the whole family. George, my old boy, he is 13 and a gentle soul who has been part of our family since 2006. Oscar joined us a few years later. He has a massive character! And we’ve very recently adopted Herbi who is settling in well although it’s been quite a new challenge adopting an adult dog but he’s doing so well and he’s so loving and it’s lovely to have a younger dog around the house.
We can see your Dachshund and other designs on boots, bedlinen, fabrics and cushions, are there any other product lines in the pipeline?
Yes, there are! Keep checking the website and new products will soon be launching!
Who is your favourite artist or artists?
I actually don’t have a favourite. I love many Artists and Styles so it’s an eclectic mix really. I buy a lot of my Art in St Ives there are some fantastic Cornish Artists there who’s styles I love.
Where’s your favourite place for a dog walk?
A good stomp on the beach in Cornwall!
In which place are you most happy?
If it’s warm and sunny you cannot beat Fowey in Cornwall.
