Walter•G is Genevieve Hewson and Lauren Emerson – best friends from childhood. After graduating from school in Sydney, they went on to travel extensively, particularly to places known for their textiles – such as South America and Vietnam.
Lauren travelled to India to do an internship as part of her degree, and Gen went to visit several times. They completely fell in love with it – and the idea that they could start a textile company was born. They promptly moved to India for 6 months and immersed themselves, learning everything that they could about indigo and block printing techniques – living in tiny and remote villages.
Lauren and Genevieve believe strongly in maintaining a hands on approach within the business, traveling to India 2 to 3 times per year and staying true to their passion for the hand block printing process.
