“Through the trees” our litlg publication capturing the moods and ideas of what inspires our style of design will be released in January 2020.  The designers we feature in this mag are Sari Nordlund, Yuko Shimizu, Stella Egidi, Marion Em, Albina McLoughlin & Christopher McGovern.

We are currently planning our second publication based on the following theme “Mist | Rock | Sea” and have opened up design submission. Both publications reflect the mood and atmosphere of Life in the Long Grass, ancestral influences and the nature that surrounds us.   The whistling wind, rain sounds, sloping hills, bold mountains, walks in the forest, cold swims in the sea, firelight, singing rocks, misty trees, the silence of snowfall, wood logs, those moments when you connect to yourself and are glad to be alive.

Submissions for Mist | Rock | Sea LITLG Publication
We are opening up a call for design submissions over the coming weeks deadline  1st week in January  and you will need to have the finished garment/accessory done before the beginning of April.  We would like to keep the garment also.  We aim to pick between 6 to 10 patterns and we  pay well for your work.  We hand over your design rights 6 months after publication goes live which should be sometime around late Spring/early Summer 2020.

Check out our mood board here and send us in your design ideas to mag@litlg.com with drawings, photos, color reference, some notes and we will send you yarn support if you are picked.  For the design brief we are up for some mixing of textures, color-work, light airy garments, simple classic designs, positive ease, comfy DK and you will be using any of the following yarns.
