Carolina Parakeets, ForestRegular price $ 270.00
The Carolina Tree of Life collection celebrates the natural history of the
Carolinas in the American South, where biologist and designer Susy Paisley
spent much of her childhood. This design inspiration comes from free-flowing
17th Century tree of life prints. It depicts flora and fauna of the region
including: the extinct Carolina parakeet feeding on cockleburrs, and the
Monarch butterfly (whose milkweed dependent migratory life cycle is critically
endangered). Also present are carnivorous native plants such as the Venus
flytrap and the Mountain Sweet pitcher plant and wildflowers like the Devil’s
paintbrush, Grass of Parnassus and Gray’s lily. Flying creatures include a
Yellow-bellied sapsucker, a Luna moth and a Painted bunting. The black-
chinned red salamander is native to the southern Appalachians, which
have the greatest diversity of salamanders in the world.
Companion prints include Carolina Posies and Carolina Monarchs,
featuring details from this larger scale design.

Newton Paisley designs tell the stories of endangered and neglected species, whilst rejoicing in their extraordinary diversity and beauty. Their mission is to celebrate nature and inspiring people to create beautiful, biophilic home-habitats. As reported by Pattern Observer, flora and fauna make up fully 70% of the textile design market across fashion and home interiors, yet often these designs are lick-and-stick or lacking context in the natural world. Newton Paisley designs are different – full of geeky specificity, authenticity, narrative, love…. Each design tells stories of neglected and endangered species, and, even better, contributes towards the preservation of critical wild habitat.
