Have you ever visited a city or country and left feeling changed? Like you had seen something that maybe you never thought you would or that few before you have been lucky enough to experience? That sense of exploration and ~wanderlust~ fills you up with the need to see and do more; to know how and why we exist and fuels something in you that maybe wasn’t there before. Wanderlust can be found, or discovered almost anywhere; be it some far away land or your own city, finding and discovering something that you didn’t know was there before.
At Milochie, this sensation has come to us in many cities, and we felt it only right to honour this passion in our latest collection. Why wanderlust? you ask. Well, through the creation of this line, we have searched the globe far and wide looking for sustainable fabrics, ethical production methods and more, and it occurred to us that others would share our passion for these practices, as well as for the beautiful cities that inspired these prints. Choosing just four was nearly impossible, but if we’ve learned anything through travel, it’s that the impossible can often be found in distant lands with a bit of searching. With that, we’re beyond excited to introduce our latest collection, inspired by four incredible cities: Bali, Jaipur, Kyoto, and Stockholm.
Bali is a place that knows no end to it’s beauty, endless flora and fauna, pristine jungles and beaches, ancient temples, and unique culinary flavours. Everything is just brighter in Bali. The artistic scene is abundant, everyone in Bali has their own expression, be it visual or physical. It’s also a world-renowned yoga destination.
The wealth of flora and fauna as well as the rich colours, and deep blue azures, come through in our Bali print, bringing to life the unique culture and “life in colour” aspect that makes Bali so special.
“Beauty on the Water,” this Swedish Capital is made up of 14 islands and 57 bridges, and brims with beautiful, brightly-coloured buildings, incredible views and amazing museums. At the doorstep of this incredible city is the Tyresta National Park, a reserve of completely unspoilt beauty, and the inspiration for our Stockholm Print.
This former capital is located on the island of Honshu, but it’s a long way from the hustle and bustle Japan connotates. It’s renowned for it’s beautiful Buddhist temples, wooden houses, gardens and shrines. This print embodies the beauty of Kyoto giving the effect of traditional Japanese craftsmanship through stitched geometric lines, woodblock printed landscaped hills and origami shapes.
Tucked away in northwestern India, this city practically begs one to come and see it for yourself. Known as the Pink City of India, Jaipur is brimming with love, community and festivals. Painted pink because pink was the colour of hospitality, guests feel welcome in this majestic place, visiting incredible gardens, palaces, and markets. Our Jaipur print brings in that unique pink colour and characteristic elephant symbol of Indian culture.
