Humberstone

About this project

This collection has patterns acquired by the Aymara people in the nitrate saltpetre production centres (like Humberstone) at the beginning of the 20th century. The colours of the collection have a special significance with black and white representing the contrast between both the Aymara and British cultures and the greys, the mingling of the two. The use of colour embodies the perfect combination of the traditional English patterns combined with the alpaca fibres’ softness.
