Our story

Petal & Pins’ stylishly playful greeting cards, art prints and tea towels are designed with flowers and foliage from their Tasmanian garden. Sandra draws on her background as a fashion designer to create ephemeral artworks that she photographs for the petal & pins collections, including their signature range the Garden Fairy's Wardrobe®.

Established in 2012, the Petal & Pins studio looks out onto the rambling garden that inspires their designs and a 'live in the moment, find joy in the things around us' ethos.  Their stationery and art prints are imaginative, unique and always enchanting.  

Petal & Pins designs are stocked around Australia, & New Zealand and as far as USA, Canada and the UK.

How it all began

"As a fashion designer with a studio looking out on to a slightly unkempt but enchanting garden, it was only a matter of time until my passion for flowers and design intertwined to become petal & pins.

I love to step into my garden to pause for thought, feel the warmth of the sun, or pick a few flowers and it was in one of those moments that I created the first petite dress from flowers. I take delight in the ephemeral nature of designing with flowers and the photos I take of the dresses are keepsakes of those moments.

These miniature flower dresses feature on our signature range of greeting cards and art prints I call the Garden Fairy's Wardrobe." - Petal & Pins designer Sandra Alcorn.
