The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has partnered with licensee Caspari, publisher of beautifully designed and printed paper products, for Sunflowers, a range of tableware and napkins.
The range consists of cocktail and luncheon napkins, guest towels, dinner plates and salad & dessert plates. There will also be a large gift bag and a bottle bag, with an additional gift bag and gift wrap to follow.
For the designs that appear throughout the range, Caspari brought together several botanical illustrations chosen from the RHS Lindley Collections – the world’s largest collection of botanical art. The RHS name appears on all packaging as well as on the products themselves.
All the paper products in the range are FSC-certified and made using environmentally conscious raw materials, ensuring that they are both biodegradable and compostable.
“Sunflowers are a joyful symbol of late summer and the early days of autumn, and these illustrations perfectly capture that splendid time of year,” says Gaea Rich, Licensing & Concept, Caspari. “We really feel this is tableware that many people will be thrilled to have at parties or gatherings.”
The RHS Lindley Collections contain more than 25,000 superb images of botanical art. RHS Enterprises Limited uses this artwork collection and RHS gardening expertise to create and endorse high-quality products, with each partner offered a tailored support package overseen by the RHS’s experienced Licensing team. In 2017 the RHS won the award for Best Licensed Heritage or Institution Brand at The Brand & Lifestyle Licensing Awards. In 2018, again at The Brand & Lifestyle Licensing Awards, the RHS Flora Apparel collection by COAST won the award for Best Brand Licensed Adult Apparel Product or Range.
The Sunflowers range was officially launched as part of Caspari’s autumn 2021 collection in June and will be supplied to wholesale customers worldwide. Stockists in UK and EU markets can pre-order wholesale product on b2bintl.casparionline.com. US customers can pre-order product on both Caspari’s B2B and B2C US websites. The full range is expected to be in stock for retail and consumers in all of these markets from early this month.
