We are very thrilled by this. Our first children's book, Illustrated by Inke.
The Town Musicians of Bremen is a well-known tale by the Brothers Grimm and dates from 1812. The story is about four brave animals that take control of their own destiny.
A donkey, a dog, a cat and a cockerel have spent all their years working and one day discover that they are no longer wanted. The animals decide to take control of their own destiny and travel to Bremen in the hope of becoming musicians. The journey is long and the friends become tired. But in the forest a new adventure awaits them.
An adventure that fortunately ends well!
Adapted from the original tale by The Brothers Grimm, Illustrated by Inke Heiland and retold by Carolien Vader

These fantastic pics just came in - they're from the Simply Soles store in Washington, USA.
What's nice to mention about this particular tree is that the stylist has added two extra branches (sold seprately) to make room for more shoes. And the effect looks really great. Well done Kassie & Team!!!
If your planning to visit beautiful Barcelona this summer, get inspired at Papeles Pentads Aribau. There You can find their own wallpaper / fabric brand Tres Tintas and of cause some cutouts from INKE.
Today we also received this great picture of Lobke & Carlo's nursery. (Wallpaper tree #2 september 066). Most people go for the multi-colored crowns, but here is a great example that subtlety goes a long way as well.
Thanks for letting us show this fantastic picture!
Belgium's leading real-estate website Immoweb features an article on ecological nurseries. We are very happy that they picked Inke's designs for this!
Allthough Inke never intended the wallpaper silhouettes to be a 'green' product, we try to keep our ecological footprint as small as possible. We find this important in our daily life and so this reflects naturally on the way we work here at the workshop.
For instance: All silhouettes are hand made locally. The silhouettes come with a pack of ecological wallpaper paste and a brush made from natural materials. Furthermore we use recycled paper and compostable plastics for packaging material.
