Hi, my name is Lisa, and I love to create beautiful winter clothing and homewares in my tree-house studio hidden within the magical New Zealand rainforest where I live together with my Honey and our little girl.
Surrounded by tree ferns and native birds, I work slowly by hand the old fashioned way. Individually adorning each special piece with my original botanical designs inspired by the woodland around me.
Creating something beautiful from my hands was once a dream which has slowly become true. I learnt to hand embroider as part of a painstaking recovery from a devastating crush injury to my right hand. Year upon year, stitch by stitch, needlework continues to be my therapy - gradually strengthening and healing my hand and soul.
I draft my own clothing patterns, capturing the essence of my favourite childhood storybooks. My style is a modern take on the classics with just a hint of whimsy. Each piece is made from locally sourced, premium vintage New Zealand wool or other recycled natural fibres so you know little bodies and the environment are both being cared for.
