Ocre Designs encompass textiles, accessories and spatial design using colours from the earth. Artist and Designer Dr Tarn McLean utilises her knowledge surrounding Modernist Painting towards creating limited edition wares and custom spaces. Her focus is on incorporating colour and scale, turning art in to beautiful designs to wear and live with.

The Botanical paintings are a salute to her great, great Grandfather and Botanical painter Adam Forster, whose paintings are now held in the Australian National Library, Canberra. Each Botanical painting is expanded into floral ‘stories’ that are incorporated into interior linens and velvets, wallpapers as well as silk clothing and handbag linings. With all wares made in limited numbers on shore in Australia, the Ocre label, established in 2008 reflects Tarn’s commitment towards developing an ethically sustainable, Australian luxury design house.
