I create beautiful, distinctive knitwear...
...beautiful, wearable knitwear and accessories for real women, of all ages shapes and sizes
Lovely to look at, lovely to wear
My knitwear is designed so that real women of all ages, shapes and sizes will look and feel fabulous.
I believe that clothes should be beautiful to look at and lovely - and easy - to wear. They should be beautiful, wearable, versatile.
Everything I make is crafted with meticulous attention to design detail and quality of finish, so garments fit and fabrics drape beautifully.
I create my knitwear on a domestic knitting machine (comparable to a weaver’s loom - sometimes called a 'knitting loom') and I use top quality silk, linen, cotton and viscose yarns.
I'm inspired by colours and textures. I explore stitch, yarn, fibre and colour by knitting many experimental knitted and dyed samples to create the colour, texture and drape I’m looking for. More than 30 years of experience in soft tailoring and bespoke garment creation helps me create beautiful and wearable garments.
Individual pieces offer innovative styling combined with a classic approach which doesn't date. I have many repeat customers who come back time and again to build their collection of my distinctive and unusual knitwear, and to find much-loved gifts (which can be gift wrapped) for their friends and family.
Made in Surrey
Everything is individually knitted and hand finished, with great care - nothing is mass-produced. And everything is made in Britain. In fact, almost all of my knitwear is knitted, finished and hand-dyed by me in my home-studio in Surrey.
Unique: no two are quite alike
Many of my garments and scarves are hand dyed or hand painted. Many pieces exploit the random nature of some of my techniques so they are unique and no two are ever quite alike.
An investment made to last
My knitwear is easy to look after. It doesn't need to be dry cleaned - although you can dry clean it if you wish to. It's ageless, timeless, and cross-season: if you look after it properly it will be an investment which will last you for years.
I’m self-taught both as a knitter and dyer. I began knitting more than 35 years ago, originally as a hand knitter, but when I discovered the incredible creative potential in domestic knitting machines I was hooked. My original career was as a corporate graphic designer, which has given me a life-long habit of the level of attention to detail required in the creation of high-end knitwear. Since 2000, creating and selling my knitwear has been my full-time business.
My knitwear is available in a range of sizes and to commission, and individual, trade, and overseas buyers are all welcomed.
