Lorraine Osborne




This fabric design was inspired by a trip to the Microbe Museum in Amsterdam.

Each little petri dish contains a world of microscopic life and death;

botulism, Legionaries disease, Ebola and streptococci to name a few.

I designed this fabric long before Coronavirus came along and decimated the civilized world, so I understand that the image of anything in a petri dish has taken a bit of a nose dive.

Just remember, the vaccine was found lurking in a petri dish too.


Microbia is also available in white or acid yellow – pick a colour and drop me an email.
