Get to know, ‘From My Mothers Garden’
This beautiful new range of floral kimonos has been specially designed by our very own Colmers Hill owner, Penny Callaghan. After working in the fashion industry for some time, Penny was inspired to step away from the growing fast fashion movement and instead create, what she calls “wearable art”. As a result, Penny has created a beautiful and limited-edition collection of printed robes and kimonos, designed especially for boutiques.
The Inspiration Behind the Collection
This collection is not only very special as Penny’s very first solo collection. But also, particularly sentimental, as the inspiration for the collection grew from Penny’s own mothers garden. This truly personal and one of a kind collection is a beautiful representation of their close mother & daughter bond.
Inspired by the magic of her mother’s small Devon garden. Penny alongside her partner Alistair captured a series of photographs that would go onto bloom into the collection we now see before us. From her mother’s garden has grown this vibrant collection including 5 key signature floral prints.
The 5 Signature Prints
The beautifully rich hand-printed designs capture the vibrant colours from within the magical beauty of nature. This collection oozes rich tones and vibrant contrasting touches, across the 5 signature prints:
The beautiful waterlily print comes with a deep green background, accented by crisp white and yellow tones creating the fluid waterlily floral. This rich blend of green tones against the white florals creates a sense of this print flowing across the fabric.
The reflections print has an exclusive Beech Tree Water Reflection design, which forms an almost Monet-esque abstract pattern. In vibrant gold, oranges and blue hues, this mix of deep and contrasting tones add a sense of luxury and a touch of summer warmth to this design.

A Message from Penny
“For me, it’s about cherishing an item of clothing, valuing it as a work of art in its own right and getting total pleasure from wearing it time and time again. “I hope the colours and vibrancy of the designs will bring as much joy as the inspiration behind them,” says Penny.
