The design for this bird print is inspired by sensational women past and present, and is named after British fashion stylist extraordinaire Isabella Blow (her husband used to refer to her as a rare bird). The cockatoo Issie represents Isabella Blow, the toucan Frida represents Frida Kahlo, the penguin Luisa represents Marchesa Luisa Casati, and the puffin Dita represents Dita Von Teese.
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!
