Spring 2017 Headscarf Collection

IMG_8742 IMG_8743 IMG_8747 IMG_8749 IMG_8751

My second collection of headscarves are here! I hand design all of these fabrics using my signature combo of watercolour + inkpen. These are then printed onto a cotton/linen blend fabric in America.
The best part about this blend of fabric is that the headscarves don’t slip off during the day!
They’re then hand sewn in Nelson. I absolutely LOVE that this dream of creating fabrics has come true – and that I get to colour each day with them!
