A Cornish art company has designed exclusive artwork for the UK’s largest horse charity.
Whistlefish was approached by Norfolk-based Redwings Horse Sanctuary for its latest fundraising campaign: Moor for Horses.
Redwings operates a number of sanctuaries across the UK, caring for more than 1,500 horse, pony, donkey and mule residents on a daily basis.
A limited edition range of charity t-shirts, tote bags and tea towels has been launched by the organisation as ‘wearable awareness art’.
Lyn Thompson, founder and director of Whistlefish, said: “Many of the Whistlefish team own horses themselves or love to ride, so this charity is very close to our hearts.
“We wanted to capture the majestic and free spirit of wild horses, and develop a piece of contemporary fashion design which reflects the vital work Redwings carries out. From an initial hand drawn illustration of a pony, we added hearts and script style lettering for a bold look.”
A minimum of £6 per sale of Moor for Horses merchandise will fund the critical work Redwings undertakes in partnership with local people and organisations.
Products are made from 100% organic cotton, and produced by ethical company Rapanui.
