Becky Baur’s background is in fine art, textile design and illustration, often with imagery for children. For the jackets she chose embroidery, using colourful imagery inspired by Mexican and nautical symbols, which contrast well with the French blues. For her, the heart represents love, healing and freedom, and the hand represents an embrace and affection.
