Walter G Pop Up Shop at Barometer Gallery, Paddington
I had an invigorating conversation with Lauren and Genevieve from Walter G today. I scooted past their Pop Up Shop to see their beautiful products in person.
They were so generous in telling their stories of working with artisans in India where they live for 3 months of the year working to produce raw and beautifully patterned fabrics. Not only are they skilled textile and product designers with an amazing sense of aesthetic, but have deep knowledge of traditional block printing and dying and collaborative skills.
They are at Barometer Gallery until 1st July 2012 selling and chatting about their wares.
Barometer: 13 Gurner St Paddington.
