Barbara Wheeler is a sustainable fashion designer making wearable art from nature.   Passion for design + making and the environment drive her practice.  Luxury natural fibres, rendered with botanical prints and dyes, are used for clothing and accessories that tell a story about place and retain the subtle fragrance of the leaves that gave colour to the cloth.

Barbara established her label, every thread counts, in 2016 to promote fashion that is environmentally and socially beneficial.

Her practice sits at the intersection of traditional craft, contemporary design and social change – in the community of slow fashion.
