Eco fashion, art, gifts and more! Gone Rustic specialises in ethical shopping, classes, and exhibitions, plus vintage, upcycled, and new products. You can also see the artist Rita Summers in action. Rita Summers is a Canadian-born eco-artist living and working in the island state of Tasmania. She found her true calling after having an illness in 2002 and opened her gallery/studio exactly one year later to the day. She discovered eco-printing and dyeing in 2008. Rita has always loved textiles and stitching and part of her mission is to raise awareness of them as a valid art form. Her underlying philosophy is to create products and source materials as ethically as she can. finding and reinventing vintage and preloved clothing, fabrics, and other materials with natural dyes, paints made from the earth and deconstruction techniques. Materials for natural printing and colour are mostly foraged from her and her husband Ian’s own property, where she can manage the trees and plants respectfully. Qualifications: Bachelor of Education (Art Major, distinction) Diploma of Art Craft Design (Textiles) ‘art is like breathing to me - life and thoughts impressed on paper, cloth, the air; fleeting sounds and images captured before they escape forever’ (c) Rita Summers
