"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland / Through the looking-glass
The winter solstice. It is difficult in the midst of winter to remember what it is like to be in the midst of summer. Travelling quickly between the two has given me some direct experience of the difference. It is like watching the Earth breathe. In and out. Once a year. breathing in, the Earth rises to the midsummer; breathing out, it falls to the midwinter.
We are well aware of these two cycles and our products with their natural materials follow the seasons. Cashmere, wool, camelhair, warm and cosy materials for winter, fresh and absorbent materials as linen, cotton, kapok for summer. Every season with the right temperature to be well connected with the living world.
