On a rainy day we went to sea

So think of those evenings that you picked up a book about pirates and adventures of treasure islands and wonderful sea- folly tales. think of mermaids and sea creatures and grab a cup of tea. Now imagine them with you and feel like you are on the greatest adventure ever, how would you keep them with you? Eels by Tenille Evans is the best way to do so.
Our latest addition to the Collect family is a wonderful designer who is a lover of antiques and traditional techniques. She has brought back to life the art of Scrimshawing, which is how sailors would pass their time and use bones of their huntings and expeditions. She works on bone and makes beautiful illustrations of sea inspired images. Very Moby Dick and Treasure island isn't it.
