Our project originated when we (Birgitta, a clothing designer and maker and Elizabeth, a textile and knitwear designer) were sharing a studio in Collingwood, Melbourne and discovered we had a mutual love of simple but refined clothing, earthy linen and handworked detail.
Having a strong interest in socially and environmentally responsible clothing, and wanting a creative diversion from our own labels, we decided to work on a simple clothing line together. We made everything in house ourselves choosing to use only natural fibres and making garments to order. With remnant fabric, we made accessories or incorporated it into new designs. We worked on three collections together which you can see here.
The collaboration is currently on hiatus as Birgitta relocates to Sweden but you can find us here:
