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.

Christmas holly

The holly brooch is beautiful as always. I really love the stunning greens in the leaves. It’s a bit of a shame that the berries are amber, rather than red. Great service as always.

Yellow studs

Love these, thank you!

Holly jolly set

Got my order in two days even with a busy launch (although I do live in Melbourne) and it's super cute!!! It's very holiday-ish without being too overtly christmasy


Beautiful, and 100% destined to make the birthday girl smile. Thank you.⭐️

Lovely and whimsical

The pearly wings are perfect and the hint of blue makes it a great addition to so many outfits. It’s definitely the piece I’ve received the most compliments on.
