WE ARE WARRIORS COLLECTION

  Our WE ARE WARRIORS campaign shoot was all about taking everyone back to the source of our feature fabrics – CHINA. That journey that we took to search for our fabrics meant that we travelled to rural villages across the massive land and eventually partnering with the Bai artisans in Zhoucheng. You can check out […]

Our Feature fabric for SS 2015

We had travelled for weeks! through villages and towns, down dusty roads, countless bus rides and endless train rides to last us a lifetime! The little town of Zhoucheng was nestled by the sparkling Erhai lake in Dali and housed a collection of dye vats that were visible from the moment we entered. The team […]

18 Ancient China round-up

So far we’ve visited 5 of the 55 ethnic minority groups of China, all of whom have their own culture and traditional costume. We’ve caught buses and trains and motorbikes across two provinces and been welcomed by the smiling faces of country men and women along the way. It’s been such an eye opening experience of […]

WE ARE WARRIORS BANNER

Welcome to China

It starts with a stare. The thought passes through my head that perhaps they are wondering why we are here or maybe they don’t want us to be here and don’t want to speak to us. Luckily we have the ability to laugh at ourselves and our lack of Chinese language and soon realised that as soon […]

14 Zhoucheng and our priceless find!!!

The convoy of fabric hunters set out in the glorious Dali sunshine, our guesthouse owner (Chris from Dragonfly guesthouse – best hostel in Yunnan!) proving to be an invaluable asset as tour guide, interpreter, historian, and negotiator.

09 Matang Village and what’s left of Batik

After searching for Guizhou batik in Kaili, we headed to Matang village with Billie (our Miao expert). This is where Batik is in abundance he says. Matang is 400 years old. 125 families live there. Families can move away from the village but new families can’t move in. The people don’t think of themselves as […]

08 Kaili and the continued search for batik

Funny how cities possess vibrations that people can pick up on. Or maybe, we are attributing these cities with our own moods in an act of personification. Either way Kaili sat well with us. The air was fresher, the city felt less claustrophobic. We were instantly assisted by an 18 year old who accompanied us […]
