"iris + wool was born as a result of my passion for high-end clothing and wanting to promote the superior quality of wool produced in Australia"
My love of wool originates from being married to a Merino sheep producer in Burra, South Australia and so it was only natural that I should choose this fibre as the basis of my stylish knitwear range which comprises of jumpers and tops.
My label name iris + wool is a tribute to my mother who passed away when I was quite young. What I do recall of her was that she adored Irises, for this reason I have in part named my label ‘iris’ and ‘wool’ as an identity to the beautiful fibre. As a mother myself, I found there was a gap in the market for what I call ‘feed-wear’ when I was breastfeeding my son and consequently I have designed a singlet to wear under garments specifically for mothers wishing to still look chic whilst breastfeeding.
In keeping with my vision of the label being all Australian made, I chose a Melbourne based manufacturer who utilises state of the art technology to produce a garment in one entire piece which ultimately results in no waste during the manufacturing process.
I do hope you enjoy wearing the iris + wool label as much as I have loved creating it for you.
