WANDERING THREADS is what I like to call an 'alternative fashion blog'. 

I founded this site in March 2011 as a platform for expressing my love for traditional culture, globally inspired style and all things ethnic. Focusing in particular on the magnificent, handcrafted, artisanal products that continue to inspire and ignite the imaginations of artists and designers in contemporary culture. 

Specifically centred around 'fashion' or, perhaps more appropriately 'style', WANDERING THREADS is a collection of findings from around the world, built upon, week by week, as I travel across far and distant lands and stumble across more wonders from the world wide web. 

Encompassing everything from jewellery and textiles to traditional dresscostume, high fashion, home accessories and other such adornments, I hope that this site will both enlighten and excite its readers to dive deeper into the spectacle of diversity and ingenuity that can be found at every corner of the globe.

 As in the words of a wise traveller and wordsmith: 


           throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the 
        safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. 
                    Explore. Dream. Discover.  - Mark Twain

I hope you will enjoy perusing the pages of this blog, swooning over beautiful ethnic inspired products, reading inspirational interviews with fellow wanderers, wanderlusting over places to visit and perhaps even discovering what's in vogue 3000 metres up a mountain in Vietnam? Either way, pour yourself a cuppa, sit down, relax and just wander...
