Anne Zahalka – Photographer

A few months ago Anne Zahalka dropped in at the Collingwood studio to have a chat about using our wallpaper as a backdrop for one of her upcoming projects.

The project is still in the early stages, but Anne has kindly provided these images for us to show on the blog.

As a big fan of Tretchikoff I love the appropriation of the gorgeous model in the cheongsam. The wallpaper is kinda cool too, but of course I would say that.

Here’s a link to some of Anne’s other work, its amazing, and anyone who wants to find out more about Trechikoff can check him out here.

The final part of the process is the colour sampling, It is a requirement of the production process that all colour’s are test printed and adjusted before being available for purchase.

Textile design commission

Printed on wallpaper,fabric and linen our junglebirds design features Gauldian finches and silver eye sitting amongst the foliage.


Project 1: Private Commission – Brief: to design a jungle/tropical inspired print with Australian flora and fauna.

The client was happy for me to utilise some of the motifs I had already drawn from previous design collections. Using a combination of these drawings and newly illustrated jungle leaves, this design evolved. The finished print will be digitally printed on Belgian linen and used by the client to upholster pieces of bespoke furniture. Jungle Birds will eventually be added to the Funky Wombat Textiles linen collection and be available as a wallpaper and commercial fabric.
