After discovering a vibrant and luxurious bloom of mold spores in a carafe of stale coffee I was compelled to photograph it. I reimagined the pattern as a textile print and began weaving this throughout the design of the shop, the pattern was also digitally printed onto canvas and distributed as tote bags.
