When you look at a tree you see its trunk and magnificent branches and leaves. But what you don't see, which is the most complex part, are the roots. Without the roots a tree cannot stand or survive. The Hidden Roots collection shows Jacqueline's nostalgia, and her family's American dream. Her father's family has a long line of wood workers. The smell of burning wood on a table saw brings back memories of childhood. This collection is meant to give traditional American fabrics a new life: cordury, seersucker, cable knit and plain weave. Materials used are: silk, wool, camel hair, alpaca fibre, yak fibre, leather, organza and cotton.
