Another endemic orchid species, Thelymitra petrophila, or
Granite Sun Orchid, is found through the drier inland portions of WA from Kalbarri to
the Nullabor. It flowers from September to October and is usually found near granite
outcrops. The beautiful purple-blue of this orchid inspired me, and the contrasting
vibrant yellow textured background picks up on the yellow of the Canola flowers.

Eclette x The Dust Merchant
Inspired by scenes from the Wheatbelt; Canola in bloom, fields of everlastings in
yellow, pink and blue hues, delicate gum blossom and dainty springtime orchids.
The Dust Merchant collection was designed to celebrate not only the characteristic
aspects of the Wheatbelt (think expansive fields of yellow Canola and paper daisies
growing on the roadside), but also to highlight the little knowns aspects of the
biodiversity in the Wheatbelt.
