I was asked to create a versatile print, to complete «Lost in Central America» textile collection for home decor line. I chose Cuba as a symbol of Central America for my inspiration, but I wanted to go beyond a common beach and palm trees image. After a long research I discovered a beautiful bird, called Cuban Trogon, that can only be seen in Cuban tropical forest.
Cuban Trogon bird impressed me not only with its color pallet, that coincidentally includes colors of Cuban flag, but also with graphical black and white lines, making it a perfect combination for a textile design.
