With a passion for botanical explorations, illustrator and textile designer Edith Barrett has launched her new Field Trip collection in celebration of Australia’s diverse native landscapes. Under her Edith Rewa label, the collection exhibits a world that Barrett “found to be alive and erupting with colour, pattern and incredible plant peculiarities.”
Barrett discovered the diversity of Australia’s natural terrains during a series of trips last year from her new Blue Mountain home to desert areas including Alice Springs. The way nature thrived in these unforgiving conditions has become a focus of the artist’s work.
“The diversity of the plants is like nothing I have experienced, I was caught off-guard because of my preconceived idea,” the young designer said.
“Part of my journey was witnessing how these native plants survived in some of Australia’s harshest conditions. Some places were dry and some wet, often I would go back the next day to sketch and there would only be a few flowers still standing. But foliage also became an integral element in the uniqueness of the designs. “
Barrett said it was “instinctual” to create motifs of plants that are not heavily popularised in Australia in the same measure as the wattle or waratah.
After working in the commercial textile industry for three years, the designer said that the designs were almost born out of “retaliation,” which has given her an opportunity to sketch on the road, use earthy colours and create her own sustainable processes. Once sketched out in the field, the designs were rearranged to best showcase the natural landscapes before being sent off to a silk printer.
” It’s been an opportunity to finally play with colours like browns and pink and prints like plants that are very indulgent, and moving away from the stagnant and narrow commercial styles. “
“Often these places are expensive and remote to experience, so I wanted to make these plants and prints more accessible and bring attention to places people often don’t put on top of their bucket list. For me this collection was all instinctual, it is creating diverse prints of unique plants that should be popularised.”
Creating sustainable products that she is “morally comfortable with, while supporting other local creatives, has also been integral in the building of Barrett’s brand.
“My prints are very limited because it is a part-time job for me and I am very committed to local production and sourcing which can be expensive. My brand is based on sustainability and celebrating local design which is why the range is so bespoke and limited, I don’t want it to reach commercial status. “
Having released nine designs, with currently 200 scarves in circulation, Barrett is not promising anything regular; rather she is taking the journey of creating one-off editions as it comes.

Gingham is one of those iconic prints that never seems to disappear. Pretty, preppy and playful, the trend has been taking over the fashion world in recent months, with Tome, Altuzarra and Christopher Kane featuring it on their runways. Miniature checks have surpassed stripes popularity this season- welcome news for those wanting to channel Brigitte Bardot in the modern era.
When it comes to styling, there is only a hint at the 50s necklines and silhouettes, with deconstruction the main focus of this season. Think asymmetry in tailored blouses, blazer, statement sleeves, hourglass shapes, pencil skirts and ruffles. Gingham is versatile, and with refreshing colour combinations like nude and white, it makes a statement.
