Remember our May Design Challenge with Bucketfeet, the company who works with artists to create amazingly unique shoes? Well, they decided to feature not just the winner but three Spoonflower designers in this limited-edition oceans-themed footwear line! Not only are they offering the winning design, Under the Water by lavish_season, but they also included two more Design Challenge top 10 finalists in this capsule collection: Oh, the Hue-Manatee by spottedpepperdesigns and Life at Sea by mimipinto. We’re so thrilled to see these designs come to life! Read on to get to know each of our talented designers whose designs will be featured.
Rachel Jaggers of Spotted Pepper Designs
I absolutely adore helping others with creating beautiful spaces through sewing and art! It has brought me so much joy, and I love sharing that joy with others. To see more of my work feel free to visit my instagram @spottedpepperdesigns or my webpage www.spottedpepper.com
Our northern-most designer, Inga, hails from Daugavpils, a small town in the southeast of Latvia, Europe. In her own words: “I’ve opened my shop on Spoonflower about a month ago. I decided to try to create a design for fabric and take a part in this wonderful challenge.
I fell in love with design when I spent my summertime in my childhood in the countryside or on the sea coast. I was inspired by beauty of the nature, weather, sea or forest smells, magic of floral world and communication with the animals. Nature inspire me every day. I’m keen on photograph and like to spend my free time in the forest.
The secret to a strong collection is ability to have a curious look on the world, keenness, alive heart and a desire to communicate with the world. Best advice I ever received – keep on walking.” … We presume she means in a pair of Bucketfeet shoes 🙂
