Claire's design philosophy is to create exquisite accessories to cherish. Each piece is adorned with intricate prints inspired by her sketchbook drawings and illustrations. The prints are rich in lyrical narrative, blending floral, avian and nautical imagery with literary references to poetry and fairytales.
There is a story behind each of her collections of luxurious silk scarves, purses and brooches. The designs capture a sense of time and place, evoking hazy glimpses of cloud through verdant flora and fauna, the sound of birdsong over a waterlily pool; layering floral imagery with British garden birds and illustrations.
Helen works from her studio in Cornwall, where the subtropical gardens and coastline inspire many of her drawings and designs. She has worked as a freelance costume designer and as a lecturer at Falmouth University for over a decade; and hold a BA in Textiles from Goldsmiths and an MA in Textile design. She was recently awarded the British Craft Trade Fair award for Excellence.
