Why The Native Pig Face?
Apart from a name only a mother could love…If you’ve walked over a sand dune on the way for a swim on a summer’s day in Australia you may have noticed a succulent plant with a spectacular bright pink flower growing beside the path.
Chances are it was Carpobrotus glaucescens (also known as pigface, ice plant or angular sea fig). And you might be surprised to learn that not only is it native to Australia, but it is also and edible bushfood.
The red-purple fruit has a flavour described by some as like salty strawberry or kiwi fruit and by others as like salty apples. Its thick, fleshy leaves can also be eaten – raw or cooked (the roasted leaves may be used as a salt substitute) and the juice from the leaves can be used to soothe stings or burnt skin. The juice from the leaves can be mixed with water and used as a gargle for sore throats and mild bacterial infections of the mouth. The fruit has also been used as a laxative, all though we probably don’t recommend that one! LOL
Welcome to our new Autumn/Winter 2023 collection Wild Forager with it's slightly dark appeal, capturing the pure essence of a Tasmanian winter with earthy walks in the forest foraging for fungi, damp days filled with comfort foods, pippy pinot by a smokey log fire, lush layers of mossy cords...all the things to be embraced in a cool climate winter.
Our new Autumn Forager design is inspired by the colours and textures of Autumn, this print is the inspiration behind the new Wild Forager Collection 2023. With each and every not perfect leaf chosen carefully for its unique tones, colours and textures, curled bark and native she-oak cones scatter the design not unlike the moist forest floor with the occasional cicadas carcass and lace dragon fly wing among the juxtaposition.
