A creative, new “wearable art” fashion label under the charming name From My Mother’s Garden. The label is the inspiration of Penny Callaghan.
What sets the range apart is the beautiful prints that Penny has created using images taken by her and her partner, Alistair Homer. The first designs, entitled Harmony, Radiance, Connection and Reflection capture the vibrant colours and magical beauty of an English garden.
From My Mother’s Garden uses environmentally responsible fabrics and techniques wherever possible. The lightweight kimonos are made of Viscose and other items from organic cotton. Sublimation printing is used which minimises wastage and only prints the fabric required. An exciting range of accessories is made from recycled linen using plant based dyes.
“For me, it’s about cherishing an item of clothing and valuing it as a work of art in its own right,” says Penny. “It fits the ethos of my boutique, where we actively promote slow fashion.”
