Local artisan: Sixhands

Today I was lucky enough to be re-introduced to local textile and wallpaper artisans Sixhands.  Australian owned, designed and made with a commitment to sustainable practices, Sixhands was founded in 2006 by three women – Alecia Jensen, Anna Harves and Brianna Pike.  I first learned of Sixhands a few years ago whilst sitting in traffic in Redfern, I used to peer in to the studio window and thought it all looked rather exciting, but never quite made it in there!  How fabulous now, that their designs be draped in front of me at a fabric showing.

What excites me most about Sixhands is that the designs are so versatile, all distinctly and proudly Australian in style.  From vivacious prints to monotone graphics to subtle neutrals, I am in overdrive plotting out where I can use them next.  I’d love to see Lorikeet Tequila Sunrise birds flying down my hallway walls!
