About this project

Inspired by the mythical imaginary continent of Terra Australis is the first collection to move away from our traditional monochromatic colours, introducing earthy pastel hues reflecting the southern Chilean landscapes. The colours are obtained mostly from natural dyes from native plants, combined with blue linen yarns and the natural shades of alpaca fleece, bringing to life our own interpretation of the Terra Australis.


£140 — £450
