Merrepen x Karolina York13 Nov 2017
We’ve long admired the stunning prints of the Merrepen Arts Community in Australia’s Northern Territory. Their designs of native flora and fauna almost vibrate with colour and a distinctive line work that is quite unlike anything else.
So when some of the Merrepen artists accepted our invitation to the Karolina York studios in Sydney last year, needless to say we were thrilled. Our designers were honoured to talk with them about their process and ideas, and engage in true cultural exchange.
Our industry can feel like a small world sometimes, so to have a conversation with textile artists from such a unique culture and perspective was hugely inspiring. We can’t wait to share more of our inspiration with you in the coming months.
