The year of the fox

Foxes are everywhere these days – on tea towels, infant booties, and tote bags. They are felted, illustrated and linocut. Perhaps it’s the influence if the 2009 Wes Anderson film Fantastic Mr. Fox, but as a decorative motif, an icon, a totem, the fox is popping up all over etsy.

Find these fantastic foxes: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8/ 9 / 10 / 11 / 12

Of course, the fox has also been cropping up at Target, Pottery Barn and Boden, which would lead me to believe that as a trend, the fox is reaching saturation, and that perhaps 2013 could be called the year of the fox. It was only when my children showed me the viral video “what does the fox say?” that I became certain: Yes, indeed, 2013 must be the year of the fox.

  1. I have to admit to a bit of a thing for foxes – we have a fox soft toy from IKEA in our sitting room – he perches on a shelf and looks down on us disdainfully…


  2. Thank you (I think) for bringing “what does the fox say” to my attention!:-)

    There’s something about a fox looking half-way between a dog and a cat that makes them fascinating to look at – aren’t the ones in your mosaic lovely?


    1. Hmmm… I never thought of it that way, but they are cat-like dogs or else doggish cats….probably depends if you’re a cat lover or a dog lover.

      I can’t take credit for the mosaic – it is the collective work of so many etsy artisans — hope you saw the links to each item below!

      Thanks for reading!


I'd be delighted to hear what you think!
