The History of Evolution
The explorers of the C17th enjoyed a passion for knowledge and a desire to explore the unchartered spaces. It was their fervent desire to learn more and intrepid nature that look them away from the shores of the Cape into the hinterlands of Southern Africa. They came not to conquer but to meticulously record the plants, trees and animals they encountered on their perilous journeys into the veld. Many of them were devoted to sketching in scientific detail the things they discovered. Aptly named Evolution Product have drawn their inspiration from these historic explorers and have designed a series of cloths and cushions which form The Magic Veld Collection.
