* A word about linen print and natural dyes. Unlike the richly dyed silks and velvets in my other collections, the palettes of these are more muted and the colours of the natural dyes will soften over time. Digital print on linen is less saturated and the print will wear as fibres loosen. These qualities should be viewed as characteristics rather than flaws.
