Each morning we woke to give our first sip of tea to Pachamama, a ritual known as chulla; the prayer of giving back and worshipping her. &nbsp;As the year grew so did my awareness of how other cultures connect to this great artist. There has been much time camping, always rising with the sun and retiring with her sunset. I feel that there is a movement taking us back to mother nature, back to where we belong. This collection of prints Alison has recreated with me has been inspired by this awareness, this feeling, and this genuine love and respect for Pachamama."</p><h2>Artist statement</h2><p>CAMILLA is one of Australia’s most loved fashion &amp; lifestyle labels.</p><p>CAMILLA is the namesake label of designer &amp; artist, Camilla Franks.
