Friendship from Umeå summer collection

juicy colors to brighten your days

We hope you will like our first collection!

Inspiration from Instagram

  • Check out these new coasters I got from society6! I'm so happy with how they look! Our Flora-L plant microscopy prints from arabidopsis and poplar came out crisp and clear, and the coasters themselves are super sturdy and durable.  Such a fun way to liven up your table decor, and a great conversation starter too! Since most of our summer socializing is happening outside, I like to use them on our patio table, with a splash of mint from the garden. 🌱⁠⠀

  • At Flora-L Design we love to work with linen fabric, and so it was a lovely surprise to find this wild flax (Linum usitatissimum) plant during a hike just outside of Banff National Park. ⁠
.⁠
Linen textile fibres are produced in the stem of the flax plant.  Linen fibres are durable, absorbent, breathable, and bacterial resistant. Flax, when cultivated as a crop for oilseed or for fibres, is suited to temperate climates and requires less agricultural inputs such as water, fertilizer and pesticides. These are just a few of the reasons our Flora-L webshop focuses on linen textile products!⁠

  • Happy Friday! Why not start your day off like us with an energizing yoga practice on top of a custom Flora-L yoga mat from society6.com?  You can do downward dog while meditating on the beauty of nature's geometry. ❤️ 🧘🏻‍♀️ ❤️ ⁠
.⁠
This pattern is from the flower stem of an arabidopsis plant -  a commonly used plant in scientific research.  Check out our society6.com shop (link in bio) to see all the patterns and products we have available.⁠

  • Raspberry time! For a few short weeks in July we are always treated to a profusion of raspberries! These delicious fruits are actually (in botanical terms) an aggregate fruit.  This means that one single flower produces multiple ovaries (female reproductive structures), which each develop into a fruit, and then these fruits merge into one super-structure of berry deliciousness! ⁠
.⁠
Also raspberries are not even a berry! Botanically the fruit type is a drupe, which is a fruit with a fleshy outer layer and hard stone in the centre.  So the correct botanical term for a raspberry fruit is actually an "aggregate of drupelets"! ⁠

  • Can you believe it's August already? With fall rapidly approaching, it always makes me think of "back-to-school" time, so I decided to get some Flora-L designs back-to-school supplies from society6.com! ⁠⠀
.⁠⠀
I decided on a paper notebook printed with our grey and white poplar wood fibre microscopy pattern, and also a laptop case printed with our Arabidopsis flower stem pattern.  The print quality is fantastic, and both products are durable and well made, certainly ready to help me tackle the 2020-2021 academic year! ⁠⠀

  • We're back from holidays and ready to get back to work! Despite the pandemic, we were able to get outside and enjoy nature on our holidays! ⁠
.⁠
This is Moraine Lake in Banff National Park, Canada.  This glacial-fed lake that is a shade of azure blue that needs to be seen to be believed. 😍 The blue shade comes from rock flour (finely ground rock) that is brought down to the lake in the glacial meltwater. ⁠
.⁠
I always return from the mountains🏔️ feeling relaxed and recharged. What are you doing to take a break this summer?⁠

  • Time for a break! ⁠
.⁠
We are taking the next couple weeks off from social media to rest, restore and relax, and to spend some quality time with our families.  In the meantime, our Flora-L webshop, and print-on-demand shops at Spoonflower and Society6 are all still open and taking orders. If you ordered through the Flora-L webshop during our pre-sale, those orders are now in production and will ship in early September. ⁠
.⁠
👋 I'm off to the woods!🏕️🌲☀️🛶⁠ See you in August!⁠

  • We loved our new "Heather" pattern so much, we just needed to try it in more colours! Here we have a purple version for a softer, feminine look. Swipe over to see a more energetic version in yellow and red option. Which one is your favourite? Are there different color options you would like to see? Let us know!⁠

  • Today we introduce you to the carnivorous plant, Drosera! Yes, I said carnivorous... Meaning this plant gets nutrients from eating animals (in this case, insects.) Drosera are usually found in nutrient-deficient areas such as bogs and fens, where it is more advantageous for them to capture nutrients from insects than from the soil.⁠
.⁠
Drosera, commonly known as sundew, uses stalks tipped with mucilaginous glands to  captures unsuspecting insects.  The sticky glands contain many different types of enzymes that digest insects.  Drosera is able to move its glandular hairs, so once an insect touches down on a Drosera sticky hair, the other sticky hairs will attack, folding in on the insect so it cannot get away and then the Drosera enjoys a nice lunch. 😜⁠🐞⁠
