Collectables from Anne Mannion
Tuesday, July 26th, 2011
Every once in a while one stumbles on a charming collection of beautiful products unique that is worth sharing. Anne Mannion’s Blackthorn Textile Designs studio in the historic railway station in Yea is a treasure trove of beautiful textiles that encompasses the sustainable philosophy of reducing, reusing and recycling antique and often very scarce textiles into modern creations. Anne’s designs and creations are often one off and unusual in their concept and configuration. She designs increasingly for discerning individuals, busy modern families and adapting family heirlooms into tailored designs exclusively for her clients. Her recent productions have included country weddings, restaurant interiors and stylish private libraries and corresponding furnishings. Employing aged and rare fabrics, imported fair trade textiles and post-modern contemporary cloths, pre-loved garments, felting of woollen and woven blankets, tartans, silks and linens, her designs and creations have found their way into homes, restaurants and a select range of Melbourne’s cutting edge boutiques and High Street retailers.
