HANDCRAFTED.

EVERY PIECE IS MADE INDIVIDUALLY AND BEGINS AS A YARN OF LUXURY LAMBSWOOL, WHICH IS KNITTED ROW BY ROW USING VINTAGE HAND-POWERED KNITTING MACHINES.

 

THIS INDIVIDUALITY NOT ONLY MAKES EACH PRODUCT UNIQUE AND PERSONAL BUT ALSO MEANS THAT THERE ARE NO OFF CUTS RESULTING IN NEXT TO NO WASTE DURING PRODUCTION.

ONCE THE PIECE HAS BEEN KNITTED, THE "LOOSE ENDS" OF YARN ARE NEATLY HAND LINKED BACK INTO THE FABRIC AND THE PIECE IS THEN WASHED AND LIGHTLY FELTED TO ACHIEVE A SOFT, LUXURIOUS FEEL TO THE WOOL.

MY STORY.

HIYA! I’M CAROLYN, A DESIGN/MAKER FUELLED BY MY PASSION FOR USING TRADITIONAL KNITTING TECHNIQUES TO CREATE CONTEMPORARY INTERIOR AND FASHION ACCESSORIES.

 

MY PERSIAN HERITAGE HAS INFLUENCED MY LOVE FOR COLOUR AND PATTERN AND THIS IS REFLECTED IN MY DARING COLOUR COMBINATIONS AND GRAPHIC, GEOMETRIC DESIGNS.

WITH EVERY PIECE I DESIGN, I CAREFULLY CONSIDER THE COLOUR, PATTERN AND IMPACT THE PRODUCT WILL MAKE, TAKING INSPIRATION FROM VARIOUS ARTISTS, ARCHITECTURE AND DIFFERENT CULTURES FROM AROUND THE WORLD TO CREATE UNIQUE STATEMENT PIECES.

LUXURIOUS NATURAL FIBRES.

ALL PRODUCTS ARE MADE FROM PURE LAMBSWOOL WHICH IS SPUN & DYED IN SMALL, INDEPENDENT MILLS IN WEST YORKSHIRE AND SCOTLAND.

LAMBSWOOL IS NOT ONLY LONG-LASTING AND EXTREMELY BEAUTIFUL, BUT ALSO KEEPS US WARM THROUGH THE WINTER WHILST STILL BEING BREATHABLE.

ANOTHER GREAT BENEFIT IS THAT WOOL IS FULLY BIODEGRADABLE. THEREFORE AT THE END OF THE PRODUCTS LONG LIFE SPAN THE PRODUCT WILL NOT END UP SITTING IN LANDFILL FOR YEARS AND YEARS.
