Fleurs des Champs with Julie Asselin•
Posted on September 01 2021
We've been longtime fans of Julie, a fellow Canadian maker, whose beautiful colourways expertly mirror those found in nature. When we approached her with the idea of a collab to debut our new project pochette, she immediately started brainstorming ways to incorporate elements of nature into the design. We took inspiration from Julie's love of wildflowers to create this limited edition version of our new project pochette in a gorgeous deep purple, with a delicate flowery inner lining.
With fall just around the corner, we thought it would be the perfect time for a shawl, so we immediately thought of Ambah O'Brien, whose creativity knows no bounds when it comes to designing unique stunning shawls. Her Lilli Pilli design immediately stood out. Inspired by a purple flowering plant "Lilly Pilly", this shawl combines classic stripes with delicate lace pattern for a relaxed yet elegant look.
Julie has hand-dyed a stunning palette of exquisitely soft Leizu fingering yarn, featuring Lavande, Biscotti and Sherwood colourways.
Together with Ambah's Lilli Pilli shawl pattern and the new T&M project pochette, this beautiful "Fleurs des Champs" kit will be available for sale in both T&M and Julie Asselin shops, priced at $240.00 CAD, this Saturday, September 4th @3pm EDT.
We will be donating $20.00 CAD from the sale of each bundle to Women for Afghan Women, a non-profit providing support services to women, children and families in Afghanistan. Thank you for enabling us to give back to those in need during these very challenging times.
Best wishes from our families to yours!
- Sam & Olga
