We love animals just as much as you do, and we want to celebrate them while they’re still around.
Dana Lenko has been making our Winters better for over a decade with her hand cut embroidered Animal Sweaters. Enjoying a cult following, worn by many a celebrity and animal lover, her sweaters are renowned for their high quality, Australian production and detailed art-like stitching. Every year she releases a limited edition of sweaters, so these extra four designs are a very special event indeed. The four endangered animals to be featured in the collaboration sweaters are the Bilby, Blue Whale, Pangolin and Galapagos Penguin.
“It was such a fun collaboration! We both love animals so it felt very natural to work together on an endangered series. We both make our Animals from a similar process of layering our chosen materials to create a very textural experience. While the Erstwilder crew are masters of creating with resin, I work with fabric and stitches, so it was very interesting to step into another creative world.” - Dana
Each sweater is 100% made in Australia, the animal appliqués are hand cut and then lovingly embroidered, making each sweater a wearable artwork. Find out more about the super talented Dana and her gorgeous sweaters at www.ilovelenko.com.
