Here’s one last photo of my eco-dyed wool coat. You can see more of the dark patches I created with eucalyptus bark and iron, with some lovely string resist lines running down the middle. It’s hard to capture this in a single photo because it has so many different interesting parts, but hopefully this gives you more of a feeling for how it turned out.

This black linen Talitha Dress along with a Rita Skirt will be making it’s way to Nashville TN, tomorrow (I’ve never been so jealous of a dress!!!) and a bunch of others will be making their way to their new homes tomorrow too. I’ve been using black linen for over a year now and I still love it just as much- it’s so versatile and classic and it’s simplicity is beautiful in every single design in the collection. This black linen is made in small batches in Lithuania where there is a rich history of producing linen from flax. It is organic and OEKO-TEX certified....and is such a dream to wear, so light and soft and airy ☁️🖤 I’m so relieved we seem to be diving straight out of winter into summer- finally!
• ZERO WASTE • My 1st attempt at a #zerowaste design. This bag is made entirely from two gorgeously soft, vintage Linen Tea Towels. 🌸
Making it was a work in progress, adding design features as I went until I’d used up all the fabric. ✂️ Admittedly, I had a few tiny swatches remaining so I came up with the idea for a Repair Kit to extend the life of the bag. A bag to be cherished + mended 🙂💛
I’m pretty happy with the prototype.. Would love to know your thoughts ✨

One week ago we had our first @agirlandthedesert photoshoot and it was so incredible.
We had such an inspiring team of women working together (and cute babies too!). Women who have inspired and challenged growth in me. The energy in that room was electric⚡️. Cannot WAIT to get all the photos back, they are gonna be magic!! #behindthescenes#creativebizowner
