ANEAU is a contemporary Australian lifestyle brand exploring the sequence of stories that weave us together. Modern textiles celebrating traditional techniques.
An aneau is a small circular band of metal. ANEAU the label is an infinite ring; of women, of connections and of thoughtfully designed items with stories to tell.
ANEAU is intrigued by age-old traditions, and yet at the same time, is always curious to discover and celebrate what’s next. Conscious, considered and meaningful exchange underpins every ANEAU design and collaboration.
About Anna Westcott
Designer Anna Westcott launched ANEAU in September 2016, but the story doesn’t begin there. The Sydney designer’s grandparents were both tailors, and a respect for tradition, art and more specifically, of quilting, was instilled early on in life. Westcott made her first quilt, Swan Song, with her grandmother Joan and mother Margaret. She was taught by these women that the stories behind an object are often just as interesting as the objects themselves.
Anna worked in the Fashion Industry In Australia and New York for 15 years. An incredible foundation and fountain of experience however Anna had a vision and a dream she wanted to create, that was ANEAU. A much slower, considered approach that is ethical, sustainable and conscious in every aspect. A brand that doesn't exist within seasons or trends, items that are made with supreme quality, made to last and style that is timeless.
Anna hopes to continue to evolve the beautiful collections and build long lasting relationships with all the people she partners with. This is what inspires Anna and is at the very core of everything she does.
