Estila Magazine Issue 33/34 Interview with Charlotte Raffo from The Monkey Puzzle Tree

Estila Magazine Issue 33/34 Interview with Charlotte Raffo from The Monkey Puzzle Tree

...Our inspiration always comes from the art rather than researching current trends. A traditional design house might set a brief, and the designer would work towards that. The way we work is by visiting the artists, looking at their work and finding something that really sparks our imagination, then finding a way to turn it into a beautiful product..

Fabrics from her recently launched business are also evident. Charlotte has a degree in colour chemistry and was a textile buyer before setting up her online store the Monkey Puzzle Tree. It helps artists translate their work on to fabric and the resulting range has been a big hit with those who are looking for interesting alternatives to mass-produced material. She is about to include wallpaper in the collection.

Michael Millward from the Culture Vulture introduces The Monkey Puzzle Tree

I was given a sneak peek at some of the other artists who will be working with The Monkey Puzzle Tree and the decoration pieces that they will be producing. That is what makes Charlotte different to her illustrious predecessor. William Morris focused on creating a style that was easily identifiable as his. Charlotte has an altogether more eclectic catalogue planned. She tells me that this is no accident, her aim is to work with a range of artists and to develop products with them that reflect how their own art work is developing without restrictions.
