ABOUT THIS COLLECTION
Collaboration is in my DNA. We created a series of illustrations that merge everything we love. Each piece is made in handmade paper and finished with embroidery. They all tell a different fantasy; freedom, dreams, and a search for discovery are some of the themes explored by the artists.
We are inspired by touch and thread. We wanted to incorporate thread from the start so our handmade paper is made with strands of loose yarn. Materiality at its core is what we are about.
THE STORY BEHIND IT …
We wanted to highlight "Why be a swan when you can be a Flamingo" - as it feels relevant to the moment we are in time. In a time when we all want to fit in our message to you all is to stand out. There will always be two types of people along the way, those who support you and those who don't. If what you create is a true reflection of your authentic self, let yourself be that flamingo, own it, you will find more Flamingos along the way, we promise.
