Free spirit, flower child, one with the land & sea..
Arnhem The Label
is one of my new favorites, and of course.. it's from Australia. Seriously, I am going to ship myself out there and live off the land if I have to.
Arnhem Bickley is one talented lady.. she grew up with hippie-like parents, travelling around Australia & overseas and never living in a real house until the age of 14. Her mom was skilled in the arts and taught her how to embroider, paint, bead, sew & dye. Oh, and did I mention it was all by candle light? Yeah! No electricity meant no sewing machines.. so she would spend all day hand sewing & stitching away.
She began selling her pieces at markets in the Byron area several years ago, the demand for her clothing was increasing so rapidly, it was inevitable that her brand would take off.
Arnhem said herself, "I worked hard to get to where I am but its a good place, I enjoy what I do and I think thats what life is about, doing what makes you happy." Amen sistaaaa.
