Otago-based graphic designer Astrid Erasmuson loves to sew, so her talents have been perfectly combined in her Plum Billy textiles: swaddles and wraps, scarves, cushion covers and tea towels. Working from her home in Port Chalmers, she’s inspired by the native birds that enjoy her garden. Her native avian and botanical designs are brought to life on quality natural cottons and linens.
This bright and fresh tui and kowhai silk scarf from Kiwisilks will make a great addition to your summer wardrobe – or a beautiful, light and postable gift for friends and whānau overseas. Kiwisilks designs are hand painted on high quality Habotai Silk, so every one has slight variations that make it unique.
