Mutina Dechirer

While I can always find something lovely from the Mutina collection, I have fallen in love with this series in particular.

I am jealous of Zoë Mowat for several reasons. Here are just a few… She is not afraid of color. or material. Oh. And of course has created a beautiful line of work that is wonderfully nostalgic (for the child in all of us). "Zoë Mowat works as a freelance designer — Continue reading
