Introducing Autumn/Winter 2023 in collaboration with bernabeifreeman

The way we use our homes has evolved. Our bedrooms have transformed from places of sleep to cosy cinemas. Lounge rooms have morphed into boutique cafes and meditative spaces of hibernation. As we seek moments of calm and quietude in our lives, we seek to surround ourselves with the colours and textures of earth and forest.

Introducing, Rare Earth

A modern bed dressed with a green merino wool blanket, alpaca throw in green and yellow with assorted pillows. It looks as if someone has just left the frame.

Designed in collaboration with Australian design team bernabeifreeman, this collection is made to transport you to an introspective place of calm and serenity. Rare Earth is designed to help you create the perfect haven — cosy, comfortable and uniquely your own.

Find colour and texture in perfect harmony

“We wanted to create a sense of earthiness and connection to nature, incorporating rich and luxurious colours and textures.”


Refined on their own and elevated when layered together, Rare Earth’s stunning colours perfectly complement the textures of natural fibre. Made with either 100% Australian Merino wool or 100% Alpaca, these throws and blankets are the epitome of sustainable luxury.

Explore Lush Forest Greens

Bring the tranquillity of the forest into your home and transform your interior with winter greens complimented by citrine yellows.

bernabeifreeman + Waverley Mills

At Waverley Mills, we are always thrilled to collaborate with Rina and Kelly of bernabeifreeman, the inventive design duo behind Rare Earth. 

From furniture to textiles, they design mostly for the domestic interior. bernabeifreeman assumes an artisan approach to their work through their considered design process and their combination of traditional crafts and manufacture.

“When designing with Waverley Mills, we always aim to incorporate long-standing blanket traditions and weaving skills, as well as showcasing our beautiful Australian wool. Exploring different textures and fibres was intrinsic to this collection.”

They aim to create products with embedded meaning and enhanced materiality, to enrich the relationship the user has with the products they live with. This approach aims to give longevity to their products for a sustainable future.

“We love working with the craftspeople of Waverley, from dying to weaving and finishing. Each different fibre is an opportunity to explore new designs and textures layered with our refined colour palette.” 

From our hands to yours

The Rare Earth collection has brought beauty and creativity to the mill. With the looms adorned with bright and bold colours, there was a tangible air of excitement and inventiveness throughout our manufacturing space. Now you can enjoy Rare Earth in its finished form—from our hands to yours.

“From a weaving perspective, Rare Earth has really pushed the boundaries. It has been an exciting challenge to produce. There has been an explosion of colour throughout the mill as the looms have worked to their maximum potential. My favourite piece in the range is the Merino Wool Gem Throw in Cobalt. Pattern and colour can really be appreciated in this piece."
