“My wild freedom,
this place calls by name.
I never feel alone here.
This, my wild freedom”
- (J Alexander)
It is not until we are faced with the wilderness that we really come to know ourselves. Reverence is a collection that speaks of deep respect for the natural world and an urge to experience freedom in it’s infinite space. Resort ‘19 is inspired by the raw beauty of the Australian desert; deep sunburnt tones of rocky terrain against an endless blue horizon, enduring desert wildflowers spread over vast open spaces and the diffuse of golden light as the sun sets west. All of which imbues a powerful sense of awe, vulnerability and belonging. On foot in the wilderness the whole world is connected to the individual. We feel the wind and touch the dirt; we see the edges and diversity of the landscape. We encounter open spaces that resemble no place or time. Reverence is a reminder of the ever-present world that exists beyond our daily lives.
We understand that creating each piece requires the Earth’s resources and energy and our intention is to reduce our environmental impact where possible without compromising on comfort and value.
Working towards a circular model, PALM’s new bio-range is developed using yarns with a special new generation nylon polymer that will decompose naturally once it’s life cycle has ended. The fabric decomposes into biomass that can be re-used as new resources.
