Hils' Dad - HG, was a bit of a character. Maker of violins, Shredded Wheat with warm milk and the most delicious jam sandwich a 5 year old could ever dream of, he also gave her the nickname of 'The Damned Oiseau'.
When Rob saw the shape of our Oiseaux family unfold, he named his new design after his bird & HG's Damned Oiseau. And so the MuffatPrague Oiseau was born.
Here's a photo of HG and his Damned Oiseau in an accidentally co-ordinated autumnal palette. But then again it was the 70's. Even the dog was beige.
