A place I call home…

A concept developed from research into historic  fishing amongst communities along the coast of Britain; a reflection and celebration of my identity and heritage. Researching traditional garments, textiles and lost techniques once used amongst fisherman, fisherwives within costal villages. 

Fishing in Devon dates back hundreds of years. The earliest reference to Devon fisheries areas early as the 14th century. Stories have been passed down from generation in my family, the collection brings these stories alive.

Sustainability is at the core of my design. upcycling, reworking and simply ‘making do and mending’are key techniques throughout the collection.
