Design Description

Our design is inspired by the natural world, in particular by trees & threats to biodiversity and ecosystems. The Australian bush fires and Californian forest fires which have raged for months now, have resulted in the loss of millions of hectares of woodlands. Ireland, once, was a country covered in native forest. The natural colours of woodlands inspired our design. After collecting thousands of fallen leaves in October, we preserved their colour by hand dipping each leaf in natural beeswax & transforming them into our skirt. Twigs in various patterns comprises the top along with moss & nut shells
