We are delighted to introduce Collection no. I of handcrafted silk hair flower accessories designed in collaboration with costume designer and artist Fiona Chivers.
Taking inspiration from female botanical artists, and in particular the work of Mary Delaney, we set out to distil the essence of ephemeral British garden flowers into elegant hair accessories. Our first collection of delicate silk and leather hair pins combines the traditional techniques of millinery and natural dyeing, with a refined and sustainable modern twist.
Fiona Chivers is a scenographer and costume designer who has worked in the UK and internationally, creating designs for dance, opera, drama and film with companies include Kneehigh, Liverpool Everyman, and the Theatre Royal Plymouth.
Our first collection showcases two quintessentially British garden flowers, the Hydrangea and the Camellia. Sets of beautiful Hydrangea hair pins and single Camellias combine delicate naturally dyed silk habotai and chiffon, gold plated stamens and hair pins, with a touch of sparkle from Swarowksi crystals.
Bespoke commissions are welcome.
