Abai Coulson StevensKnitwear07702199112abai@abai.co.ukwww.abai.co.ukThis collection is inspired from the Amazon rainforest and the lives of the women high up in the Andes. The research for this collection was gained from living and travelling around the Amazon and being able to see and personally experience all the different colours, textures, smells and sounds the jungle had to offer, all of which have been captured and realised into a range of knitwear. The yarns in the collection have been sourced from all over the world. Dyed and cultivated with the smallest possible toxic stain on the environment. Yet, there has been no compromise on colour. All the wool supports British heritage herding. The silks have been individually hand dyed with natural dyes. The alpaca yarns aid the lives of small communities throughout the Amazon, keeping their artisan traditions alive and enabling them to have an income from them. The research and the yarn sourcing have come together to create a bright and colourful collection. Consisting of blanket inspired silhouettes, using a variety of techniques and bringing them all together making each piece individual.
