They continued: “It has a global outlook; celebrating cultural diversity and placing ethics at the centre of decision making. Collaboration and community are key, including community farming initiative.” They describe the trend as “experimental, colourful and joyous; showcasing a mix of patterns, materials and products relating to preparing spicy world cuisines as consumers use food as a vehicle to travel the world and have a global adventure in their own kitchens.”

Scarlet Opus director, Phil Pond elaborates: “It’s about rebelling against establishments, with their systems, protocols and procedures, holding governments and charities to account. It’s about moving to a more relaxed comfortable environment, and about re-defining what is means to be prosperous.”
