Wild budgerigars tea towel
The Budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulates) is found wild throughout the drier parts of Australia where the species has survived for the last five million years. They are opportunistic breeders and respond to rains when grass seeds become abundant. They are affectionate to their flock-mates, preening or feeding one another. Nests are made in holes in trees, fence posts, or logs lying on the ground; the four to six eggs are incubated for 18–21 days, with the young fledging about 30 days after hatching.
The linen fabric we use is made of natural fibres derived from the flax plant Linum Usitatissimum (Latin for 'most useful). Linen has been in use for thousands of years and is an excellent fabric to print on.
