iSpy Tote: raspberry (red) and aqua green protea flower
It's very important to the designer Lauren Frates that her products are always 100% South African. Once she has completed a design, she sources fabric locally and then hand over printing and sewing to wonderfully talented people who live and work in her home town, Knysna.
Lauren Frates lives in the Western Cape, indigenous home to a huge range of proteas, including the pin cushion protea. Here is her take on this strange and beautiful flower, with a little touch of Marimekko.
Size: approximately 47 x 50cm (excluding straps)
