Let me tell you a story of Lady Jane Franklin!

 (1791–1875)

A woman of idealism and great mental activity, she was determined to assist in the creation of an 'infant nation' (her friend Dr Arnold's phrase) rather than to play the traditionally passive role of governor's lady in a convict colony. In this aim she succeeded. Through her efforts Tasmania became the intellectual centre of the Australian colonies during Franklin's term of office. Under her influence he founded in 1839 the society which became in 1848 the first Royal Society for the advancement of science outside Britain. In 1839 Lady Franklin bought 130 acres (53 ha) of land near Hobart Town for a botanical garden, to which she gave the name Ancanthe. Lady Franklin was an indefatigable traveller. She was the first woman to climb Mount Wellington and to travel overland from Melbourne to Sydney and from Hobart to Macquarie Harbour. 

Lady Jane Franklins story is truly captivating, so we thought we would name our new A-line linen skirt in her memory, alongside our new Lady Jane Blouse. Both garments nod to a past era, classic feminine style with very practical elements like easy wash and wear linen, pockets (for spells)  and quality craftsmanship.
