The Quilted Velvet Garden at Hampton Court 2009

A carpet of 30,000 seedling oaks form the base of the garden floor, reflecting the extensive tree-planting initiatives at Quilted Velvet, while the backdrop of Picea abies forest represents the mature forests that are managed responsibly.

The purple heather swirling through the oaks as the ‘spirit of the forest’ illustrates man and nature working together in harmony.

The three blue cedar trees watch over a horizontal tree trunk representing Quilted Velvet’s commitment to ensuring that three trees are replanted for every one that is used.

Surrounding the garden the green oak structures enclose and protect the seedling oaks, echoing how Quilted Velvet protect and manage their forests responsibly. These also represent the way trees act like solar panels, turning sunlight into cellulose.
