About the flower:

Thelymitra macrophylla, the Scented Sun or large-leafed sun orchid is a tuberous perennial plant widespread throughout the south-west of W.A. in the moist forest and woodland areas. It has a single long thick leathery, strap-like leaf and produces stunning, sweetly scented blue to purple flowers from August to October. Each stem can be up to a metre tall and covered with flowers.

As their common name suggests they are sun orchids that require bright midday sunlight to open and they close at night or on cloudy days, which helps protect their reproductive structures from damage or dehydration. Their unique fragrance attracts insect pollinators such as bees and wasps. The flower colour is uncommon in nature and symbolises luxury, uniqueness, serenity, confidence, self-awareness, emotional strength and spirituality.

Brand story

Pixie Nut & Co. first began in 2016 with a range of recycled greeting cards, and has since expanded into a beautiful collection of Australian-inspired accessories and clothing. Designer Philippa works from home in an off-grid community in Northern NSW, surrounded by subtropical rainforests. 

"I’m originally from Perth where I draw much of my inspiration. Western Australian is so beautiful, I went up and down the coast a lot as a kid. I’m also inspired by my current surrounds in the Northern Rivers and all the amazing bird life here and various road trips around the country, especially the red center. I'd always wanted to be an illustrator or fashion designer so it’s really cool that I've ended up doing something in-between where I can explore both dreams. I studied a diploma of fashion design and technology and an advanced diploma of set and costume design at WAAPA." Pixie Nut & Co. Designer and Founder, Philippa Nilant
