Raw Silk Jacket Inspiration

Huon Pine (Lagarostrobos franklinii) is a species of conifer native to the wet southwestern corner of Tasmania, Australia. It is a slow-growing, but long-lived tree; some living specimens of this tree are in excess of 2000 years old.

The wood is highly prized for its golden yellow colour, fine grain, and natural oils that resist rotting. .

Historically, the wood has been used in the building of classic wooden boats, but is now also used to craft feature furniture and homewares.

With this wooden beauty as inspiration, the ‘Huon Pine’ Raw Silk jacket uses a warm golden-hued and white silk in a stringybark weave to pay homage to this Australian treasure. A classically assured and individual look for the discerning and classic individual.
