British homewares and lifestyle brand Sophie Allport has collaborated with the National Trust on a striking new collection

The Woodland collection from Sophie Allport and the National Trust celebrates woodland creatures and the mighty oak tree with acorn branches dotted between red squirrels, deer, pheasants, hedgehogs and the occasional owl.

Sophie explains: “I was inspired to design the new Woodland range from my many visits to National Trust places, both as a child, and now with my young family. The collection reminds me of those magical, happy times.”

The new range has 26 products including fine bone china mugs, a jug and a tea bag tidy. There’s also a range of Sophie’s popular kitchen textiles including a tea towel, apron, oven gloves and roller hand towel. Other products include a quirky owl doorstop, ironing board cover and knitted statement cushion.

At least £10,000 will be donated to the National Trust from the sale of the Woodland collection, to support the charity with the ongoing conservation of the places in its care.

Clare Brown, Head of Brand Licensing for the National Trust, comments: “The fact that Sophie’s collection is deeply rooted in her childhood experience of nature and the National Trust, shows how important it is that these places are protected for future generations.”

“With every item purchased we can continue to ensure that our houses, garden, parks, coastline and countryside inspire children and families for many years to come.”

Prices start at £8 and items are available from:
