Chickenfoot Designs is all about the simplicity of the handmade
object. Whimsical, unique designs, our images range from a tin-tin
illustrational style to academic measured drawings in carefully selected
colours. We aim, with our products, to provide a moment of pure
delight - the perfect gift or keepsake. Current products include gift
cards and tea towels, all produced locally in Melbourne.
Helena Harry, the creator of Chickenfoot, studied fine art at the VCA in
Melbourne many moons ago before travelling to Europe where she lived
for 20 years. She qualified as an architect at the Architectural
Association in London and went on to work on major building projects in
London, Cambridge, France and Melbourne. She returned to Melbourne in
2005 to discover a much transformed city. In 2008, Chickenfoot was born
from a desire to return to the simplicity of the handmade small scale
There's a secret posse of incredibly talented people behind Chickenfoot –
with the London-Melbourne connection in common, we enjoy discussing
everything from food and wine to music, and back again, just in time to
get some work done...
It's important to us that all our products are made locally. Tea towels
are hand silk-screened in Melbourne on 100% European linen using water
based non toxic inks. Our cards are also printed in Melbourne on
recycled paper FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper.
Envelopes are made from 100% recycled post consumer waste.
Although we are a young company, such is the popularity of our designs
that we are now stocked in exclusive outlets all over ,
