Meet the makers at the Geelong mill we work with

Former mill director Quentin and textile designer Ana at the mill Seljak Brand has been working with a heritage mill in Geelong for the past year to create the beautiful Rugged range made from 100% deadstock woollen yarn.

Platypus Publication: Exploring place, climate and time with Marilena Hewitt

  Trained architect cum publication creator, Marilena Hewitt is a deeply thoughtful human, putting her energy into hyperlocalism, community and documenting changing climates through place.

It is not afraid to express ideas through casual poetry, semi-political, visual jest and bold gestures. We have the privilege of sharing our studio with Marilena in Brisbane and find her work both thought provoking and powerful. We chatted to Marliena about SALTY – the latest publication from PLATYPUS...

The Geelong mill has operated and specialised in wool fabric since 1920. Today, they continue to create quality upholstery and apparel fabrics for commercial and domestic use. Whether...
