Textiles

Our work has a strong emphasis on texture. I love exploring the tactile qualities that gypsum creates with intricate textures that become hugely abstracted when scaled large over our scarves. The gypsum creates a signature palette of chalky, natural tones which work well on silk and cashmere. Ideas are inspired by nature and start with mark-making. The landscape around my studio near The River Thames is an especially strong influence. The colours change through each season and are inspirational in so many ways. This November we're excited to launch a range of pouches and cushions printed on peace silk, which means "non-violent silk breeding and harvesting". It allows the completion of the metamorphosis of the silkworm to the butterfly. Our aim is to create treasured, timeless pieces that prioritise longevity over fast fashion; original art scarves and accessories that stand-out in a world of mass production.
