Daybreak

Daybreak

“Daybreak,” he said, looking out at it. “I always thought it was funny that dawn should be called daybreak. This is when the day is made – it's the beginning. It’s the best part…”
Erin Kelly - The Poison Tree

Our love for historical landscapes, botanicals and African textile designs have found their way into this collection.

Daybreak

Daybreak

The world has not survived for millions of years only for our species to destroy both it and ourselves.
This past two years have made us relook and rethink how we work, how we live and what we see as valuable. A much-needed AWAKENING.
In my own life, my family has often had to take a back seat due to my inability to say NO. “No” to activities that rob me of time, and not “yes” to the people closest to me.
As I have dealt with cancer treatments over the past year, I have had to re-examine the way I live. The constant chase to be better, brighter, more helpful, less of an ass.
My body said NO to so many things as I battled to sleep, battled to turn off my monkey mind. I had many discussions with God and he listened patiently, while mapping out a plan for me. He placed his warmth and kindness in those around me and made me stronger than I ever thought possible.
I do not know why I have been spared, but I think maybe God needs me to be a wife and mother for a fraction longer, and to protect the historians’ work I find, and perhaps to merchandise a few more spaces ☺
During this time of debate and being awake, a gift was bestowed on me.
I woke up in awe to birdsong at 4 in the morning just as a kaleidoscope of colours rose in the sky.
“Daybreak,” he said, looking out at it. “I always thought it was funny that dawn should be called daybreak. This is when the day is made – it's the beginning. It’s the best part: you've got all the potential of the day to come, and you haven't wasted yet. When it gets dark, that should be daybreak.”

We therefore called this range “Daybreak” – to new beginnings and as a reflection on all the breaks we have had over the past 10 years of creating Evolution Product.

Our inspiration came from the colours created in the early morning light – as Martin Luther said, God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone, “but on trees and flowers and clouds and stars”.

Xander, Ceire and I relooked the past decade’s assortments. We love so many of our designs and wanted to rework and refresh some of our favourites to celebrate 10 years of creating.

We combined our love for the historical landscapes, botanicals and African textile designs we have found into our Daybreak assortment and added some new designs.
Two of my favourite plants, Scadoxus puniceus and Cyphostemma juttae, have happily settled in our garden.
