About

Luxury hand knitted inspired by my life in Sri Lanka

Hello, my name is Rebecca Ward and I’m an obsessive knitter and tea drinker.

I sell hand knit accessories using luxury natural fibres; silk, cashmere, mohair, cotton to name a few. These are all hand knitted by myself. I also offer a custom made service so I can provide you with the perfect accessory to match your style and colour choice.

“I am absolutely delighted with my beautiful shawl. The quality of the mohair and silk is gorgeous and the intricacy of the knitting is exceptional. Perfect for all season’s and the colour matches most of my outfit and my green eyes. Just perfect, I would be lost without it” Kim Clarkson

How the idea came about.
Whilst holidaying in Australia in the Christmas of 2012 I was taken to the beautiful town of Sassafras, where I visited a most wonderful Tea Shop (over 300 types of Tea) and a beautiful yarn shop. Standing there, absorbing the surrounding area I realised that I would one day love to run my own Knitting and Tea shop. The idea of Knit 1 Tea 1 was born.

Inspiration.
Living in this tropical environment has definitely influenced my knitting, I have developed a love for Lace knitting – Shawls are a must in these air conditioned buildings! And without the need for jumpers I have turned to accessories, for me something must always be on my needles and the next item already planned. With the beautiful surroundings, all the colour and texture of Sri Lanka, it is impossible not to be inspired!

Experience
I have been knitting for about 25 years and am currently studying a Level 3 City & Guilds in Hand Knit Textile Design.

I have worked as a Pattern Technologist since 2002 and for the last 8 years I have specialised in Lingerie, which I love for its intense requirement of attention to detail and achieving the correct fit across all the sizes.

I had a super time in London when I left University to go and study a Post graduate in Innovative Pattern Cutting from Central St Martins. I visit London every time I go back to the UK to absorb the wonders and creativity which is there in abundance.

I completed a Fashion and Textiles BA (Hons) degree from Lincoln De Montfort University, where in my last year I realised I wanted to pursue a career in Pattern Technology and my life journey to Sri Lanka began.

Hope you enjoy looking around,

Rebecca x
