Luna’s New Knit Studio – from grunge to green September 9th, 2015

Posted by: lunaAdmin Category: News
Luna Gallery Knit Showroom

Living the lush life in our NEW knit studio in Kew – with welcoming Winter flora and a leafy green outlook – bringing a fresh dynamic to our design and production process. … but how we loved those grungy back streets of Richmond … yet how we embrace the serenity and charm of Kew.
With an abundance of natural light and peaceful green surroundings, we are pretty sure we don’t actually miss the chaos, noise, parking problems and dreadful lighting of our previous beloved DUNGEON.
But our memory’s are fond – and a part of Luna history lives forever in Cremorne.
Embrace change – it is good for you – it creates new challenges – and then brings fresh, sustainable growth and evolution.

Spring Blooms et Ballet September 22nd, 2015

spring blooms at luna gallery

We love our new Luna knitwear studio in Kew – it has certainly put a Spring in our step – with magnolia and pear trees in full blossom. After waiting for our magnolia to bloom, it turned out to be a STAR MAGNOLIA.
Did you know … that the depth of hue in the Star Magnolia bloom can vary … due to air temperature the night before. So very happy to see a rare glimpse of sun warming up our Winter flora. And a recent trip to see The Australian Ballet perform ‘Symphony in Three Movements’ was a triple delight.

Old Farm Machinery August 22nd, 2015

Farm Machinery

A visit to the farm is cathartic, energising and inspiring … and certainly a great leveler. Our big wide land – the colours, the textures, the animals – the heartache & the joy.
Old farm machinery – rusty yet beautiful – totally inspired us for our Winter 2016 yarn palette.
It also reminded us that we can’t create without putting in some good old fashioned ‘hard yakka’.

Up, Up and Away - city skyline Cremorne

We love the whoosh of fire and air in the morning – hot air balloons adorning our skies – travelling past our windows and balconies.
The city skyline in Richmond – vast, industrial, iconic.
