Textile art and clothing in a garden setting. Caroline captures the beauty of nature using the pigments and imprints of the leaves themselves. No synthetic
ink, dyes or silk screens are involved. Hand and free machine stitch are used for embellishment, producing complex patterned cloth. The naturally occurring colours are soft and harmonious and the process is respectful of the environment. Leaves and dyes
come from sustainable sources – many are grown in her own garden. The slightest change in plant species, soil or climate produces marked variations in the prints – every item is unique. Textiles are natural fibres, ethically sourced wherever possible.
Vintage textiles are upcycled, giving them a new lease of life. Much of the linen and lace is sourced from brocantes and charity shops. Cooking pots used for processing are also recycled – copper preserving pans, cast iron laundry pots, aluminium cooking
pots. All these techniques are the antithesis of today’s ‘throwaway’ society.

Hi Caroline. I love your sweaters (cashmere or cotton) and would love to purchase one but I would need a 38 size bust. Can you let me know if you have any in this size. I don't seem to see them.

Hi Caroline: I'm the person who didn't make it to Morocco...and I really don't want to wait until next fall to take some instruction from you. Any suggestions for a course I could take in the meantime
