The Plantlife Collection was inspired by watching artisan weavers in Morroco.
True to Zoe’s fashion of continually experimenting with the design she found an eccentric basket weaver in central London.
She would arrive at his apartment and be warmly greeted with coffee and biscuits. Throughout her time with him, she was drawn to the surroundings, which was a lifetime collection of his baskets, works in progress, and a fascinating collection of old books.
The materials were stored all around the apartment including a fresh batch of new reeds in the bath.
He helped her with the skills required and she later adapted them to a range of jewellery and she is reminded of her travels along with this incredible experience.
