I love the combination of fabrics - it always adds interest to a garment - below is a linen and black silk combination - cool and interesting for summer - or layer it over a long sleeve T for those cooler months - all details are on the website - www.distanttravellers.com.au
and if you see something on the website you like  and want it brought to the shop, just give me a call or send me a message

Half way through the week - and I am still taking photos and writing descriptions for each of my garments
My apologies for not keeping my website up to date - it's a concept I find hard to come to terms with - buying garments on-line - but I realise my customers are wanting this service more and more - please remain patient as I put my, not so good,  photos on the site - and I make a promise that when a garment leaves my studio floor and is ironed and labelled ready for presentation to my customers that it will be photographed and added to my site (almost) immediately
Have a great day
Now, back to work

Just a bit off-white - but the coolness of this natural cotton long top/dress makes this garment a must for summer - see full details under Fashion - drop down to Tops/Knits

Tuesday, October 27, 2015

My range of hand dyed cotton garments are dried in the sun.  They are made in an artisan fashion.  If there are slight irregularities, they are part of what makes the garment unique.  If colour is not the same from one garment to the other, it is for the same reason that no two flowers are exactly the same.  Please treat these garments gently .
