Design Statement

Inspired by the form and detail of doors, this collection celebrates the blend of traditional handcraft, delicate patterning and natural dyeing to create unusual contemporary fashion fabrics. Extensive experimentation with traditional hand manipulation techniques has produced unusual textural combinations with wool, silk and paper yarn.
