Babingtons Blends collaborates with Lisa Todd Designs
Babingtons Blends Were Delighted To Discover Lisa Todd Designs.
Interior designer, Lisa Todd grew up in South Africa providing her with the perfect tropical canvas to develop a vibrant decorative style.
Lisa creates beautiful paintings for homeware designed for people seeking unique, individual, uplifting pieces. As a colourist and pattern maker, she finds great joy in the power of colour and the connection this creates with others.
When we asked her about some of her favourite tea memories or moments, Lisa said she has very fond memories of visiting a tea plantation in beautiful Malawi and later seeing the tea auctioned.
To fuel creativity at the start of the day Lisa enjoys a strong pot of Assam.
The Ubuntu Collection
[u-boon-too] / I am because you are
The creation of the Ubuntu Collective is the result of celebrating traditional craft and strengthening links with South African crafters during the pandemic, and we are now working together to develop products for a global market.
For this collection Lisa researched the history and purpose of Zulu beadwork which has led to a collaboration with a team of master beaders and wire workers in South Africa who have translated Lisa’s paintings into joyful objects and artworks, giving each piece a narrative and story to be celebrated.
These bead works have also been translated into digital print designs and used across homeware products.
