Sydney wearable art

With summer making a rather sudden departure in Sydney today, (I've been in denial for a month...) and enough rain to cause flash floods once again, it seems the perfect time to wrap up in one of these lovelies.

This is a hand felted reversible vest, with a textured silk nuno side and an Australian merino wool side. The piece can be worn in several ways, with collar folded over or sculpturally high to enwrap you during the chill. 

A wooden button brooch can be attached where you like, leaving the variations to your imagination. It can also be turned upside down, making the collar more exagerated and the vest shorter. Play!

These natural fibres have been dyed using onion skins, in an eco friendly creation that is original, one of a kind and made by hand in my studio in Sydney. Dare to be different.


  1. Beautiful vest !!!I love natural dyed - effects are absolutely wonderful...
