Eric and Eloise

Inspired by the folktales of Scandinavia and her own childhood in the forests of Canada, Jessica wrote a little story about an unlikely friendship between a hare and a fox for Accent Decor. The story is bound in a beautiful handmade book. Writing this little tale was the start of a marvellous collaboration - between women making paper in Nepal, master mold-makers in China and Sarah Bagle, Accent Decor's creative director.

Accent Decor also brought Eric and Eloise to life with an enchanting collection of accessories: everything from delicate, gold-embossed bisque-ware to knit ornaments and votive candleholders. The unlikely duo of Eric and Eloise now grace plates, pots, gift wrap and more, accompanied by their misfit Framily.

Eric and Eloise products are in stores across North America. What’s special about buying them here is that you get to buy directly from Jessica, who will send a personalized note to you or someone you love, when you order from her. And, like all of Jessica's books, the Eric and Eloise storybook comes comes autographed, with three complimentary miniature prints of artwork from the book.
