We love animals just as much as you do, and we want to celebrate them while they’re still around. 
Erstwilder is collaborating with Australian designer Dana Lenko and her label Lenko  for a special range focused on our endangered  animal friends.As well as brooches, necklaces and earrings we’ve had four of our designs re - imagined as strictly limited edition Lenko X  Erstwilder  sweaters! A Whale, Pangolin,  Penguin and a Bilby (Oh my!). So, join  Lenko X  Erstwilder  in bringing attention to endangered animals. 


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.

I love Erstwilder

Beautiful broaches!

Perfect throughout the year

I plan on wearing this little darling all year long. She just... *gets* me and my love for cheese, you know? I know she and I will be great friends as long as she doesn't hog the cheeseboard.
Beautiful detail, right down to the innocent look in her long-lashed eyes.

Super cute!

Absolutely in love, so glad I ordered her!!! Quickly shipped and well packaged. What a beautiful tribute to Elsa Lanchester, the iconic Bride of Frankenstein.

Super cozy and Fantastic embroidery

I ordered this during the fundraiser, the sweatshirt is the best quality I have ever purchased. The embroidered image on the front is even better in person. I just love it. I’m doing a unit on endangered animals and I wanted to wear this to help spread awareness. It’s perfect, extremely talented designer, Thank you!

Prickly Pineapple
