BY ANDREA CARPENTER
The Winter Phoenix is a California based handwoven textile brand by Andrea Carpenter. Each piece is inspired by nature, astronomy, art, music, and literature. A purist at heart, Andrea creates one-of-a-kind pieces that are not only inspired by the earth, but that also come from it by using sustainably sourced fibers.
BEHIND THE COLLECTION
This collection is inspired by the examination of fresh, gaping wounds. The tearing open of old scars. The deterioration caused by keeping secrets for others, silence, gaslighting, abandonment. The healing powers of shedding light on darkness and the transformative effects of recovery. It is a representation of the evolution from separation and grief to restoration and healing.
