About

AMANDA TESTA


Amanda is a Sydney-based visual artist and designer, with a fashion, jewellery and accessories background and long-term affection for textiles.


Drawing on the imagery of 70s Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Orientalism, psychadelia, and stained glass, Amanda develops concepts into captivating fabric appliqués that decorate her collection of irreverent clutch bags. Each hand-produced appliqué is made by individually cutting, layering and embroidering unique textile combinations: a considered mix of

wools, silks, linens and leathers form the distinct character of each tactile design. Her special and completely unique pieces are hand-made entirely in Australia, and made in strictly limited numbers, preserving an ethos where luxury and creativity co exist.
