I mix cashmere, linen, cotton and silk in an alchemy of colour and texture to provide a unique experience in every piece.
My inspirations and motivations derive from the colours and textures I see around me in nature. For me there is an endless fascination that can be gained from exploring how different colours react when juxtaposed with others. Shades penetrate other shades to varying degrees and the changing conditions of light when the clothes are worn also greatly affect the way in which the colours are perceived by the viewer. For me the perception of colour and its essence is not only an objective experience but can trigger emotions, memories or other deep routed sensations.
Recently I have been experimenting by mixing fibres which felt firmly with those which are resistant to felting, to capture the spirit of a place or object and build a sculptural fabric. My work has become more intricate with 20 plus tucked stitches, and several colour changes within each design. This enables the fabric to gain more colour depth and tactile interest for the wearer.
For many years my expert knitter Chris has helped with thescarves and now Clare has joined us. My grateful thanks to them.
My current range includes fine cosy wraps and scarves, all of which are timeless design classics with a contemporary feel. The scarf collection has been extended to include over 34 different designs and colour ways.
