Lisa Harling's Profile

About

I am crazy about beautiful and interesting textiles, music of all types - always played loudly while I work, wild nature and my family. Enchanted by the ancient art of shibori, each piece exciting as it is opened, and its unique and often unpredictable beauty is revealed. Much of my work is enhanced and inspired by this form of dyeing and texturing cloth.

My workmates also inspire me - 7 yr old daughter, Chloe, asking me can I just sew one of her creations together for her, and 5 yr old son, Alex, junk-gadget maker and cardboard box engineer.

I try to create clothing that is timeless, for women who know what they want to wear. I love women and femininity, and want to allow our strength and individualities to shine through.

The state of our world is important to me. I strive to treat it better than I do now. I consider the environmental impact when I research and source materials. I collect rain water for dyeing. I dream of having a solar-powered, rain-water-fed workshop. Maybe, dare I, an earth ship.

Sometimes I stay up waaaay too late watching tv while I read, write or work in the ad breaks. I love cartoons. Damn tv.
