My latest collection is now on sale with 15% off to help celebrate the end of year in style and originality!
Created by hand in Sydney by myself. Inspired by the Australian landscape, made with soap and water combining merino wool fibres with silk fabric. Dyed by hand using eucalyptus leaves, bark, indigo, walnuts, onion skins; many things from nature to create unique patterns onto the fabrics. All one off creations, all unique, delicate, poetic, romantic and extremely sensual and comfortable on the skin. Perfect for many seasons, add a scarf or shawl for colder months or alone for warmer seasons.
Eco chic creations for those end of year parties and work functions, perfect for making you stand out from the masses in your original creation that cherishes nature and your body. All natural fibres and natural plant dyes, a positive earth celebration with one of a kind poetic beauty.

I recently googled my name as you do, but under images. What a beautiful surprise I found waiting for me. Here are two snapshots from that collection. I find it a fascinating glimpse of some of my journey so far, some things I had even forgotten.
It is also interesting to be able to make links between things that previously I had forgotten the roots of. For example my trip to the central desert and my costumes for a dance group in Toulouse back in 2009. Pathways entwining and connecting silently within, like the roots beneath my garden compost. It's refreshing to revisit these memories.
