Avifauna, the bird life, is a series of conserved bird species molded  in textile. “After having observed, analyzed and documented nature, we’ve stared with Avifauna to materialize nature as we see it. In every new project we learn more about the change of land, water and the flora and fauna that go with it. Being designers we see blossoming timber, bleeding textiles, moving garlands and a limitless offer of techniques in the ways nature constantly changes and adapts. We try to materialize our observations and bring it closer to the industry we work in. In Avifauna we molded on the conserved parts of the species to materialize their characteristics in textiles.

In 2010 the collection existed among others of a Grey Heron, Tawny Owl, Lapwing and Blackbird. Now the collection expanded with this special edition collection for Rubelli.
