"We are shaped and fashioned by what we love." - Goethe

Amanda has had a love affair with sumptuous fabrics, textures and colours from a very young age. She remembers her motherĀ“s quilts and "las lappie" bags and was inspired to create. Her subsequent and lifelong passion for design, fashion buying and management was complemented by a keen business acumen instilled in her from age nine by her father.

Evolution Product was established to create a platform for the distribution of new product lines developed by the Evolution team. Evolution Projects believes in creative partnerships and shared art. Together with trusted and brilliant suppliers and distributors, Evolution creates and markets innovative, sleek and emotive product lines for local and international customers.

The evolution of our design journey continues, with the launch of a new range called Desert Diaries - in which we resume the discovery of beautiful stories of our heritage, both personal and patriotic.

Desert Diaries is  a combination of jacquards, prints and knits inspired by the unique |xam San works of art created by !nanni and Tamme at the end of the 19th century.
