Meet the Maker: Wanderland x Aureum

While very busy working on our exciting new Wanderland collaborations, we thought we should take a moment to look back at our debut artist from our first xAureum Collection. 

Nicole Levenberg is a South African textile designer and artist, educated at Central St Martins in London and now based in Johannesburg. She creates meticulously hand drawn designs for Aureum, that are predominantly inspired by the natural world.

While focusing her attention on designing fabric and wallpaper collections, she collaborated with Wanderland Collective on a range of beautiful aquatic inspired silk scarves, twillys and velvet embellished pouches.

"Being a native Joburger, December holidays were always spent alongside the Cape coast where the exotic allure of the ocean took hold. This coupled with endless hours watching the whimsical underwater worlds of “Planet Earth”, catalysed the desire to capture this weird and wonderful space on fabric. Curling, twirling shells, textured mosses, dancing algae and darting jellyfish submerge us into this magical aquatic world."- Nicole Levenberg, founder Aureum Design
