Design Inspiration

Botanical Armour by Carla Gottgens presents stylised native Australian medicinal plants. Carla has a love of native flora and the research surrounding which plants grow where and how they are used. She found dozens of references to the medicinal value of many Australian native plants. Featured in this UooUoo are the wattle, snake vine, hop bush, melaleuca, old man weed, sandpaper fig, kangaroo apple, emu bush, goat foot, billy goat plum and drooping sheoak.
