During the summer months, we at Monsoon Corporate Gifts were delighted to be contacted by the fine people at the Bateman Foundation. For those of you not familiar with it, here is a brief introduction.
Established in 2012 by artist & naturalist Robert Bateman, the Bateman Foundation grew from his philosophy that helping people to connect with nature through art will inspire them to conserve and protect it. By promoting nature’s importance, the Foundation’s programs, collaborations and exhibitions inspire discovery, understanding and development of a love of nature leading to healthy and creative living, environmental stewardship and spiritual growth.
We were contacted by the Foundation to create a new line of Robert Bateman branded scarves, featuring full color reproductions of his paintings. Proceeds of the scarves would go towards the Bateman Foundation to further their mission of preservation and sustainability.
With many paintings to choose from, we narrowed it down to one of Bateman’s amazing pieces called Sudden Blizzard and created a 100% Silk scarf digitally printed with the artwork. The people at the Foundation were overjoyed with the outcome and greenlit the scarf.
Pictured below is the 36” x 36”, 100% Silk scarf, digitally printed.
