FigTart is an online boutique who create playful yet elegant pieces of art. They combine botanical photographic portraits with tactile fabric mounts. Before encasing them in bespoke hand-crafted frames. Thus creating wonderfully unique pieces of art. Founded by a step-mother and step-daughter team. Lou & Molly are based in rural France and London respectively. The duo are currently showcasing three sumptuous collections as well as a special edition too.
Their Duchess collection celebrates romantic florals. Pairing together a crumpled double French linen mount in an ornate, vintage-style frame. The Pearl collection sees elegant seashells resting atop a swirling bed of silver silk. And the Coquette collection captures show stopping, long stemmed florals together with a tactile ‘lizard’ mount. Choose from either the bold colourway or the sleek noir. And finally, their special edition. Hortensia, features blousy blooms of hydrangeas together with a gorgeous rose-wood coloured velvet in a wooden frame.
Lou is an adventurer! An explorer of the Globe! Living and photographing her way around it. From the African Bush to the rugged hills of the Cévennes. She takes the natural world for inspiration. Lou’s photographs celebrate flowers, light and plants. The elements of earth, sky and water feature strongly too as well as the changing of the seasons. Molly on the other hand has always been drawn to making and production. She started out in backstage theatre. Making props, painting scenery and building sets. Later this evolved into a career in documentary television production. Surrounding herself with fabrics and tools she is most at home in her workshop. Spending most of her time there with her loyal and loving dog Coco.
Having only launched in 2021, figTart promises to be a very exciting brand. And they excitingly invite you to be part of something special from the very beginning.
