Historic graphite mining in the Lake District is the inspiration behind this striking black and white design, featuring Herdy amidst the undulating landscape of the Cumbrian Fells.
Mined as early as the 16th century, the large quantities of graphite found at Borrowdale were the purest quality ever to be found. For many years Borrowdale graphite was used for marking sheep (most probably Herdwicks), although probably best known now for its use in the finest drawing pencils. How lovely to see the two brought together in this ewe-nique design!
