The bold and playful frog print for this colourful print was inspired by aposematism. This is when animals and insects evolve bright colours signalling their toxicity, to keep predators at bay. The print includes fabulous poison dart frogs as well as a stunning selection of beetles, including the charming ladybug. Being attracted to what isn’t necessarily good for us (in this case fatal…) is a familiar yet risky concept. However, with this statement print you are safe to explore your attractions freely and with decadence.
House of Hopstock uses a lot of the same colours in all their china products, which makes it easier for you to mix and match!
