Lavender Meadow: Empowering and uplifting

Designed to evoke endless fields of lavender meadows, calming, idyllic and buzzing with bees, sunshine and energy, our new Lavender Meadow capsule collection is almost an act of self-care. "I created Lavender Meadows as a salve to my busy days. Crafted from the prettiest lilac-purple and combined with a ditsy floral - it's a gentle inclusion in any wardrobe. With three silhouettes available in this new textile - there's something to suit everyone," said Emily Dezentje, founder - Little Tienda. ​Created by screen printing the custom meadow floral over the hand-dyed lavender fabric, each piece is made from a lush Indian flax that's ideal for layering, it retains warmth in the cooler months, and is breathable in hotter seasons.  No matter the time of year, through all seasons -...

Introducing Rainbow Disco, the latest collection from Little Tienda founder and designer, Em Dezentje.  “Creativity is my escape from the uncertainty of the world around us.
