Sally Nencini's Profile
Originally from County Armagh, Northern Ireland; I am now based in Norwich, Norfolk - I studied MA Fashion at the Royal College of Art and have designed for, amongst others, Levi’s and M&S.
I have always had a very strong interest in textile design and pattern. My end of year collection was based on fairisle knit designs from 1950’s skiwear.
Since bringing up a young family, my long-held interest in handworked craft, surface pattern and vintage textiles has come to the fore. I designs and makes machine-knitted toys, blankets and cushions using soft lambswool. All my work is hand made in the UK.
I have also trained as an upholsterer, hand embroidering the top cover of chairs creating functional works of art.
My love of vintage toys - especially the imagery and colours of early Galt and Abbatt wooden puzzles and picture card…
