An intricate, considered and luxurious handcrafted collection of textile samples for the high-end market. Photographing beaches along the south east and south west coasts of England provided the core of my inspiration. I was determined to produce textiles that did not result from technology. I have used seaweed as a material, a fibre, ‘Seacell’ and a sequin to show that designers can source materials within the environment to create beautiful pieces. Techniques include hand and machine embroidery, hand dyeing and screen printing.
