What started as a gift idea for family and friends spurred a new approach to business for designer Anna Westcott. The creation of a range of quilts and textiles in muted, tonal colours for her new line Aneau became a form of meditation for Westcott – and a platform for seeking out likeminded creators. Her journey lead her to the Purkal women’s foundation in a rural village at the foothills of the Indian Himalayas, alongside photographer and friend Hannah Scott-Stevenson. To celebrate the launch of Aneau, Wescott and Scott-Stevenson are hosting an exhibition of the photographs captured during their time in India at The Special Group Studios, Surry Hills. The exhibition will run from October 26 to 31.
