Joe Banana's handwoven raw silk jacket pays a striking homage to the iconic Australian artist Fred Williams and his renowned painting 'Forest Pond' from 1974. This wearable masterpiece captures the essence of Williams' masterpiece, translating his vision of the Australian landscape onto fabric with remarkable precision. The raw silk fabric, expertly handwoven, mirrors the intricate brushwork and texture found in Williams' painting, making it a tactile and visual delight.

The colour palette of the jacket draws directly from 'Forest Pond,' with its lush greens, earthy browns, and vibrant blues. The intricate weaving technique replicates the dappled light and intricate foliage that Williams captured so masterfully in his work. Wearing this handwoven raw silk jacket is akin to stepping into the very heart of Williams' forested landscape, carrying with you the spirit of his artistry and the beauty of the Australian wilderness. It's a wearable tribute to one of Australia's most celebrated artists, bridging the gap between fine art and fashion, and allowing individuals to carry a piece of Fred Williams' vision with them wherever they go.
