Tresco Wooden Postcard (Photography by Islander Ellie Tabron)
Captured by local photographer Ellie Tabron, these wooden postcards make a lovely gift or a great momento of the island.
Printed on sustainably soured Birch, in the southwest.
Ellie lives on Tresco with partner Sam and her two children, Jude and Etta. She has recently turned her passion for photography into a part-time profession, and says of her journey:
'In early 2020, heavily pregnant and negotiating the strangeness of a world growing more unrecognisable by the day, I put my feelers out on social media to see if anyone would be interested in buying a calendar - both a passion project and an insurance policy in an uncertain time financially. I was overwhelmed by the positive response.
By the summer I was selling calendars, notecards and postcards both online and on my home island of Tresco and as the year progressed Iwas lucky enough to work freelance with a handful of local businesses too. It’s hard to imagine, just one year on, that it all started from an Instagram Story.'
