Today is Earth Day, and it is also the day when Turnbull & Assers launch my son Daniel’s drawings depicting three of the most endangered species in a series of limited-edition pocket squares.
Turnbull & Asser
Turnbull & Asser are the definitive British shirtmaker and holder of a Royal Warrant for shirt-making and have partnered with my son Daniel Perkin to create a series of pocket squares featuring his drawings of three of the most endangered British animals.
There are three designs in the range of endangered British wildlife
- the hedgehog (sobering to know that our beloved hedgehog is on the endangered list!)
- the Scottish wild cat
- and the pine marten.
You can view the limited-edition pocket squares on Turnbull & Asser’s site.
Art to raise awareness and 20% of profits from each sale for wildlife protection
The survival of these animals is crucial to maintain the biodiversity of Britain’s natural woodlands. The partnership between Daniel and Turnbull & Asser is an attempt to use art as a means to raise awareness. 20% of profits from each sale of the limited-edition pocket squares are being donated to The Wildlife Trusts. This will make a positive contribution to the protection of these endangered animals.
