latest news

from Myths & Legends…

Our latest collection ‘from Myths & Legends was a collaboration between myself and my son Nick. Ever since Nick was a young child he has had a fascination with things of mystery and the unknown. This was an easy and fun collection for each of us to design and work on.

We drew inspiration from different parts of the world and their local myths and stories. We know there is an endless array of magical mythical creatures to explore and we would love to hear if there are any others that you would like to see us create.

As always we look forward to hearing your welcomed feedback on this collection.

Namaste,
Amanda and Nick

Europe 2014

I have been meaning to put this post up forever. Last year I was fortunate enough to take an amazing journey through a few beautiful cities in Europe.

Some of the definite highlights for me were in Germany, France and the Netherlands. Because Pete (my husband) comes from Germany, we felt quite a connection there.

One of my favourite things to do is travel and find inspiration by experiencing the different cultures, sights, sounds and delicious food. Each city had its own wonderous delights to tempt us.

Here are some of my travel pics that I wanted to share with you, of our journey throughout Europe. We will definitly be going back there again very soon.

Namaste,

Amanada
