Exciting news! We have launched a limited edition print ‘Wolfie Turns 40’. In celebration of Edgcumbes’ 40th year in the tea & coffee industry – or as we‘re calling it, 40 QUENCHESSENTIAL YEARS, we have collaborated with local designer Victoria Oatway to create this exclusive print. Wolfie turned 40 is available to buy now!
As a small (but growing) independent business, we are passionate about collaborating with local businesses and creators around us. We approached Victoria Oatway (Bobbie Print) to collaborate on a piece of art to depict Edgcumbes’ emblem ‘Wolfie’ - originally from the Edgcumbe-Rendle family crest. We had noticed Victoria’s work dotted around Sussex and fell in love with her style and abstract interpretations. Wolfie has been adapted a few times over the years; so we were intrigued to see how Victoria would transform Wolfie into a more interactive character. Of course we are thrilled with Victoria’s imaginative interpretation of our beloved wolf.
In the finished ‘Wolfie turns 40’ print we see him meandering through the coffee farms of Colombia and the lush plantations of Sri Lanka, with some blue accents as a gentle nod to our coastal location ‘Sussex By The Sea’. Wolfie travels everywhere with us, he is on every bag of tea & coffee we produce and stands proudly on our Trade van – delivering our products to cafes across Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire. So it feels only natural to mark our 40th birthday with this print, so Wolfie can be displayed proudly in your home or workspace. This limited edition print is inspired by the incredible locations in which our coffee beans and tea leaves are grown. Alice & Chris have been lucky enough to visit dozens of farms and plantations in Central and South America, Africa and Asia to source our fresh coffee and tea.
Our direct farm to cup way of doing business means we are never short of stories to tell from the luscious fields, enchanting mountain range backdrops and vibrant cities the farms are located. Victoria has really exceeded our expectations and we are overwhelmed with the incredible print that has been produced.
We are so excited to be able to share this limited edition print with you, in celebration of roasting and blending premium teas & coffees for 40 years! ‘Wolfie turns 40’ is available to purchase online or from the EDGE Store.
