About

Sustainable knitwear and homeware designed and made in Bristol

I set up my knitwear practice in Summer 2015, after graduating with a BA (Hons) in Fashion Design from Batley School of Art in Yorkshire. Relocating to Bristol enabled me to set up a home studio where I create the knitwear you see in my shop. I am currently studying full time for a Masters in Textile Designn where I am exploring the use of natural dyes in my work.

Sustainability is at the core of my creative practice. The yarn I use is carefully chosen from either vintage sources, mill end stock or from British producers with the highest welfare standards. The majority of my items are made from wool - a naturally renewable fibre that is soft yet hard wearing and can even be composted when the garment finally comes to the end of its life cycle. My packaging materials are made in the UK from recyclable sources.

I use vintage knitting machines to create my garments, which are worked by hand and finished using a linking machine to ensure sturdy seams. They are then hand washed with eco friendly laundry liquid and air dried before being sent to you to ensure a soft finish.

I love custom orders, so please contact me if you have something particular in mind!
