The Gently Unfurling Sneak is the work of Melbourne artist-designer Anika Cook, who started the business in 2006 after discovering that her Creative Arts degree rendered her completely unqualified for actual jobs.
Anika likes small touches of absurdity, vintage illustrations, old paper and books, bright colours, and stripes, but even more than that, she like putting all those things into her printed clothing, accessories and artworks. All products are happily made in Australia using the finest natural fibres, sustainably grown bamboo, and occasionally the back of an apple box that was found down the road.
Five years down the road, The Gently Unfurling Sneak has settled into its slightly strange style and has found its place in the crazy art-fashion-design world. And no one has had to get a proper job yet.
