Fashion Designers interested in collaboration, inspiration and new ideas
About me / About business or organisation:
My work explores the endless possibilities between colour, shape and texture on the human form.
I create unique pieces of “wearable” textile art that incorporate ethical and innovative fibres, materials and processes.
I am passionate about keeping our rich textile heritage alive with a focus on natural dyes and hand spun yarns, incorporating these skills into modern design.
I love to push the boundaries with my materials, combining textures that should not normally appear together and processing dyes with experimental techniques that have never been used before.
Career history / Company history:
Fashion Graduate that realised I am actually a textile designer/artist and highly specialised in the use of natural dyes and hand spun yarns, with a passion for creating unique and precious materials for retail to fashion designers.
