"Some prints start from a painting, others from an inspiring photo, relating to a particular theme. My current collections are three – the Mata Hari collection is inspired by the life and clothing of the exotic dancer and accused spy Mata Hari. She was inspired by colours and jewels from the East and this follows through in the collection. The Nature Abstract collection is about softer earth tones, with hints of deep purple, burnt orange and green. It is about looking at nature through hazy light – seeing part nature – florals and foliage, part abstract."
"Prints are digitally produced on silk. A love for natural fibres is what drives me to create printed scarves on these fabrics. Silks include: Silk habotai – a thin silk with a shine, silk chiffon – a sheer silk, silk crepe – a thicker, more textured silk, and silk crepe satin – which is crepe with a subtle sheen. I also use cotton silk, as it offers that same luxe feel of silk with the thickness of cotton. It is the perfect blend of both."
"The scarf you bought is part of the Intertwined Collection. This collection came about through the amalgamation of the curves plants form – taken from scraps of old lace, with the curve of a deformed spine. The idea is that a deformity can still be beautiful. Your scarf is called ‘Mirror Spine’ and is a perfect example of this."
