Anna Grierson from Milk Linen Design
Milk Linen Design (what a lovely name!), is a collection of beautiful linen in stylish patterns and fabrics, made by the very talented Anna Grierson. The designs are all locally made, and the patterns of limited run. Anna’s luxe, but reasonably priced collection will be at our December market, but you can check out her brand new website from Dec 8th for a sneak peek.
When and why did Milk Linen Designs begin?
The Milk Linen Design concept was born approx 1.5 years ago when my daughter (Ava was 2 and my son William 5).
This came about purely by the frustration of finding contemporary bed linen that would merge from Nursery through to Junior years and that would blend with the rest of the décor through out the house. After being confronted endlessly with flowers,fairies,trucks and dinosaurs(these are all great in the toy box) I decided to search for fabric collections and started designing.
Favourite colours/materials to work with?
All materials are 100% cotton and locally sewn and handmade. This is what makes the linen unique as it is not mass produced and the fabric is limited edition. My collection consists of 3 piece cot and single sheet sets, cot and single quilt (doona) covers, comforters and cushions with made to order fit outs of cot valance and bumper.
What are your creations inspired by?
I am inspired by fashion,colour and décor trends, oh and of course my 2 darling children, without them or my husband, I probably would never have gone down this wonderful path of motherhood?!. These components make up the essence of Milk Linen Design which specializes in Contemporary and Vintage baby linen. There are gorgeous vintage rosebuds and petal trails in hues of blue,pinks and coral moving into nautical blues, spots and stripes with red and pink and white spotted ruffles, fuchsia pinks and corals. The vanilla bean luxe range is suitable for either baby boy or girl.
What can customers coming to the market expect to see at your stall?
I am very excited to launch a new addition to Milk Linen which will be available at the market on Sunday 13th, and that is the baby bodysuit. These are white cotton short and long sleeved with matching detail to the quilt sets. They are just gorgeous with a price point of$24.95-$29.95 to make a great xmas gift. Also as a Christmas special I will be offering 50% off all Vintage Designs and cushions will be priced at $25.00.
