Mountain Print

Inspired by a train trip across the Rocky Mountains, I created the Mountain Print by layering photographs of the mountains - mixing opacity levels and soft, pastel tones.

Landscape Print

The Landscape Print captures a topographic view of the Rocky Mountains. The original photographs are intensified and abstracted to the point at which only shadowed outlines of the mountains remain.

Hybrid Print

The Hybrid Print was created through a process of digitally assembling different images of flowers into floating, color blocks of a surreal palette.

Aquatic Print

A variation of the Hybrid Print, the Aquatic Print is a floral pattern of sea-blue calm disrupted by a digital glitch.

Kinetic Print

An interpretation of Alexander Calder's mobiles, the Kinetic Print is an ink painting of dancing figures that seek to capture the lightness and playfulness of the artist's ethos.

Corals Print

At the maritime trade gallery in Singapore, a collection of 9th century Tang artifacts had been recovered from a shipwreck. Encrusted with corals, these artifacts expressed new textures that inspired this luminous hand-sketched pattern.

Fossils Print

A skeletal outline of marine organisms layered in silvery tones with a gold accent, the Fossils Print is an imagining of the deep sea.

Glide Print

A hand-sketched pattern of a Cooper's Hawk in a garden city, The Glide Print is a celebratory print that evokes a sense of renewed optimism.

Types of fabric

1. Natural and bio-degradable fibers such as mercerized long-staple 100% cotton and silk that are tightly woven with increased durability and sheen, gentle and comfortable against the skin. 

2. Tencel-lyocell fibers, a regenerated wood-pulp fiber (from eucalyptus or bamboo) by which raw cellulose is dissolved in an amine oxide solvent which is non-toxic and reusable. Tencel is easy to care for and has a silky and breathable quality. 

3. Polyester-blends for sturdier garments such as jackets and trousers which are intended for extensive wear and perform other functions such as water-repellant needs or provide stretch. 

4. Plain-colored fabrics are sourced directly from a Japanese factory, an establishment which is transparent about the fiber content, fabric quality and the manufacturing process.  

 

WASH CARE

Our pieces are designed with durability and functionality in mind. Extend the life cycle of the garment by following wash care instructions, found inside the garment or on the product page.

General wash care (for cotton / cotton-blends):

- Hang dry
- Medium iron
*Avoid tumble-dry as natural fibers may shrink or pill under high heat

Silk:
