Biodiversity loss and how we can help further prevent it is the key inspiration behind this sustainable textile collection. Moths, an indicator species sensitive to our environment, are a major part of our biodiversity and play a vital role in the ecosystem. Allowing grasses, wildflowers and other vegetation to grow provides a safe haven to protect and nurture our smaller creatures, and improve species richness, benefiting all.
These hand woven and knitted designs evoke the natural beauty of rich, soft, textured, breezy meadows and intricate, delicate details of papery, patterned moths. Engaging in traditional techniques, yarn from local sheep fleece was hand spun and combined with other carefully chosen wools, mohair and peace silk, creating these contemporary, luxurious fabrics for interior spaces. In a painterly style, subtle tones of colour were enhanced by natural dyeing, echoing the soft palette of the untouched meadow.
