"My aims, when I set out to create our textile collection, were threefold:
-The base cloth should be good quality and 100% natural fibre. I'm a big believer that the nicest materials to live with are those that have been harvested or hewn from the land. In my own designs, I tend to try and avoid using synthetics as, to my eye, they lack in depth and soul.
-All designs should be conceived by hand. I firmly believe that the imperfections derived from first drawing/painting my designs by hand gives the finished product a much greater beauty than it otherwise would have. To me this added layer of complexity simply cannot (yet) be replicated by someone using a stylus and graphic design software.
-I wanted designs that had some root in tradition but that felt thoroughly relevant today. I feel we've achieved that but..........have a look.....let me know what you think?!
