Poa & Pod hand dyed raffia
The first String Harvest collaboration for 2017 brings you... Poa & Pod raffia!
Poa & Pod is the label by Anna Whitelaw, creating unique and small scale works of natural fibre art. Based in the Yarra Ranges outside Melbourne, Anna experiments with various basketry techniques, using both local fibres and contemporary textiles, also sharing her skills through workshops. We both value the importance of ethical craft supplies and share deep respect for handmade and artisanal industries, so why not work together?
This limited edition collaboration is also the result of ongoing discussions and learning about colour - sharing Poa & Pod's aesthetic and bringing the String Harvest community along for the ride. The subtle variations in the raffia bring beautiful texture and tonality to whatever you'll create. We hope you love!
Each bundle is carefully dyed and bundled by Anna in the Yarra Ranges, Victoria using premium Madagascan raffia and weighs 80-100g (almost twice as much as individual Nutscene bundles).
