The Festival Collection scarves are all named after cities which hosted events for the 1951 Festival of Britain. ‘London’ draws it’s inspiration from double decker buses, the vibrant South bank and the bustle of TFL’s intersecting tube lines.
Helen trained at the Royal College of Art and prior to that at Winchester School of Art. A strong sense of colour and a passion for keeping traditional skills alive create fabrics in harmony with the loom. Inspiration is drawn from traditional handcrafts such as patchwork and cross-stitch which Helen merges with contemporary geometric patterns and bold colour combinations.
