Save A Tusk With A Tea Towel - Sophie Allport's Savannah Collection

Like many of you, the closest I’ve ever gotten to see some of the amazing creatures that walk our planet is at a handful of zoos over the years. Those memories of awe and wonderment have stayed with me, and as an adult, you realise just how lucky we are to have such beauty and diversity of wildlife in our world.
