World Bee Day Collection

Bees are increasingly under threat from human activities. It is well-known that bumblebees are great pollinators, and therefore have a key role in producing most of the food that we eat and the flowers we enjoy. To raise awareness of the importance of pollinators, the threats they face and their contribution to sustainable development, the UN designated 20th May as World Bee Day and at Moorcroft, we wholeheartedly support this.

As you sit back to enjoy these designs in your home, let them be a reminder to us all to think carefully about mowing down weeds, using chemicals in gardens and leaving wild areas untouched in our gardens for bees to enjoy.

At the start of 2019, Rachel Bishop launched four framed plaques each featuring a different species of endangered bee and the flowers attractive to them. The collection proved to be a huge success, selling-out within weeks. As we approach World Bee Day, we are delighted to announce that Rachel has redrawn her designs onto new pieces of various shapes and sizes. However, in addition to these four diminutive vases also comes a new bee vase from Rachel, together with further pieces by guest designers.
