Hi, my name is Astrid. I'm a graphic designer who loves to sew!
After moving to Port Chalmers I was so inspired by the abundance of native birdlife we're lucky to experience right here in our backyard and out and about in West Harbour, that it wasn't long before I started creating artwork featuring native birds and plants with the idea of having some of those designs printed onto fabric.
When my Mr shared my designs to our Port Chalmers community facebook page the reaction to my designs (and to the first tiny test batch of printed scarves & swaddles) was so warm & enthusiastic that I jumped in headfirst and ordered a much larger run of fabric so that I could take my handmade creations to craft markets around Dunedin.
Since then I've made a bunch of new designs, my products list has grown, and my creations have made their way into a range of stores & galleries around the country.
I've recently rediscovered a love for screen printing so I am now creating a set of exciting new designs - still inspired by our awesome native bird friends! - for my future screen printing adventures. Follow me on Facebook, Instagram, or send me an email through the contact page asking to join the email list to be first to know about new prints & products as they happen.
Thanks for stopping by, and if you purchase something... thank you! Your support of my little design & craft business means a lot.
