Some of my earliest, most fond childhood memories are of summer time spent at Mimiwhangata beach, at the top of the North Island of New Zealand. It is a long vastly untouched shoreline with incredible white sand and the clearest, bluest water I’ve ever seen. As a child I was fascinated by the tiny colourful shells which stood out like jewels in the white sand. I stumbled across my treasures when I was packing away my things in preparation to move to Australia. I love the kina (sea egg), paua and mussel shells and when I was laying out the uniquely coloured fan shells I began to think of textile designs for our 2010 Meridian collection…watch this space!
