I create beautiful, distinctive knitwear for women...
My knitwear is designed so that real women, with real lives, can wear it everywhere and everyday - and look and feel fabulous. Luxury, wearable knitwear which is timeless and cross-season, individually made of the finest materials.
totally wearable knitwear and accessories for all women
I believe that clothes should be beautiful to look at and lovely - and easy - to wear. They should be beautiful, wearable, versatile. And easy to look after.
Everything I make is crafted with meticulous attention to design detail and quality of finish, so garments fit and fabrics drape beautifully.
Knitted in silk, viscose, linen, cotton...
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. Knitting with top quality yarns helps me to create luxurious and long-lasting garments, and because they are individually made I can give each piece the attention to detail and finish which leads to a beautiful end result.
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. I've been creating garments for myself and others for more than 30 years, all of this experience in knitting, soft tailoring and bespoke garment creation helps me to create beautiful and wearable garments for my customers.
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.
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'd like 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.
Made in Surrey (UK)
Everything is designed by me and everything is individually knitted and hand finished, with great care - also by me, in my home-studio in Surrey. Nothing is mass-produced. So you won’t find my knitwear on the high street, and the odds are against your ever seeing anyone else wearing anything remotely similar. Unless you have a friend or family member who also likes my knitwear!
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, but since 2000, creating and selling my knitwear has been my full-time business. I am grateful to my earlier graphic design career for developing my obsessive attention to detail, which is crucial to the creation of really beautiful, top quality, well-finished knitwear.
