MEET THE MAKER // MIKALA JAMES

Describe your work? I design towels in limited editions, handloomed in Turkey.

What’s the best thing about your job? The best thing I guess is being my own boss!  I’m ambitious so I like to set goals and challenge myself, I also love the creative side of my work – it’s a good balance.

What inspires you? I’m always experimenting with colours and patterns, I’ve got a huge selection of swatches in my studio and I keep an archive of past designs to refer and reflect. Inspiration can be in the form of an artwork, a postcard, something I’ve dreamt! I definitely don’t follow trends or seasons and I always respect the craft.

Which other designers are you looking forward to seeing at Bowerbird? There’s something about ceramics that I just can’t stay away from, I’m always collecting handmade cups and dishes so no doubt I’ll be looking to visit Ana Jensen ceramics and Clay by Khoa.

What’s your favourite piece of your own work that will be available at Bowerbird? Our new Spot Beach Towel, it’s really plush and it’s a fun design – spots of colours that contrast with eachother – charcoal, brown, white, pale pink.
