Cool Heat is a lively collection of woven textiles. It explores the baked earth and cool water of the Mediterranean in bold colours and fluid hand-worked graphics . The designs come directly from the land and heritage of Southern Italy - its buildings, ancient artefacts and ceramics.

Otranto and the Lucanian Dolomites are the inspiration for the colour palette. The hot earth yields deep aubergine-brown,  pale cream and soft jasmine. The vibrant aquamarine is taken from the sea and reflected sky and partnered with lime peel green and the green of pine tree fronds.

Bridging  the gap between geometric and organic patterning, this range  offers striking designs in both large scale and small repeats to meet the various needs of the customer and provide aesthetic cohesion.
