Marilla Walker designs contemporary women's fashion that is both wearable and beautifully made. She looks to the beautiful lines seen in Scandinavian and Japanese design for her main inspiration, but there is also a Central American influence in there somewhere, which she hopes is evident!
The patterns are printed on quality paper and come in a printed brown paper envelope.
