Inspired by wild seas and tree-lined dales
Hem in Swedish means ‘home’. We all have a sense of that special place where we feel we belong- warm, safe, at peace. Long walks, good food, log fires and family, calm and snug. I created a small range of cushions- soon to be expanded to include throws and blankets, that capture that sense of Home.
Sea glass and mussel shells, sand and ocean, autumn leaves, grey skies, and summer heather provide the colour palette for the Home Collection. Working in merino and Shetland lambswool, the gradients between these two colour schemes forms the basis for my warps. My drafts are inspired by waves, using different structures from herringbone to complex network twills and Jämtlandsväv or crackle weave, sweeping curves are a recurring feature of this collection.
The Autumn Leaves and Julgran cushions are inspired by Scandinavian designs that I love- you’ll see similar trees throughout Swedish folk textiles going back hundreds of years. These ancient designs were passed down through the generations, as were the textiles they adorned. It’s this timelessness, of family and connectedness that I try to capture in this collection.
