Inspired by rugged peaks and lush green dales of the Peak District.
Surrounded by dramatic hills, green meadows and dry stone walls, the Peak District is my home. Nestled at the foot of a dramatic gritstone ‘edge’, this landscape and huge skies provides ample inspiration in the form of colour, texture and purpose. With its own micro climate, I can see three seasons in one day. The Peak collection reflects changing seasons in function and form. Surrounded by fields of sheep, wool provides the backbone for this collection.
Lichen and limestone, moss and sky provide the colour palette for the Peak Collection. Fibonacci sequences provide gradient for subtle skies and a geometric block gives a sense of the dry stone walls that are such a feature of the Peak District. Largely using wool, this collection is designed for comfort- whether battling the changeable elements or the warmth of home, the Peak Collection uses the best British Lambswool and the softest merino to conjour the hills and dales.
In August the moors erupt into vibrant berry purples, and the big skies provide a canvas for spectacular sunsets. The stillness, broken only by the ever-present sheep and red kites circling above is the most peaceful place to call home. A good walk provides a wealth of inspiration- from hedgrow colours in autumn to the vibrant yellows of lichen on limestone walls, the Peak District is a colour chart writ large.
