Indigo Beach Bag gets it's unique character thanks to raffia. Raffia is a fiber from a giant leaves of a palm tree found in Madagascar. I have used a real raffia which is seldom found these days as it has been mostly replaced by plastic copies. You can easily knit or crochet from raffia, you just have to tie pieces together as it comes in different lengths. Various size of the yarn gives this bag a very native character. It is knitted in moss stitch using 8mm knitting needles. This is the ultimate eco friendly bag because it is 100% compostable.
Kintsugi is a Japanese art in which broken ceramics and pottery are fixed with resin and powdered gold dating back to the 15th century. It is the process of taking something that is broken and, to many, now worthless and transforming it into a work of art. It became so popular that people were accused of purposely breaking expensive pieces in order to have the coveted repair done.

Wild Web Sweater is knitted from silk and mohair yarn which is very fuzzy. Changing the needles size between 5 and 8 during knitting created an organic irregular texture defined by loose stitches. The result looks almost dreamy like the softest spider web. It is ultralight and incredibly soft but still warm. Perfect for sunny spring days or chilli summer evenings.
Tidal Beanies are inspired by watching the rise and fall of sea level on a sandy beach. When the beach is drying out during a low tide it creates whole lot of different shades and colours. They are changing gradually in a stripe pattern. It is an ever changing show of nature.
Tidal Beanies are knitted loosely from a blend of wool, silk, cotton and nylon making them ideal for a changeable spring days.
