Studio Linen Collection 2017

6th April 2017
Tuareg
A new collection of individual designs featuring classic shapes updated with deconstruct-reconstruct techniques and asymmetric details. Perfect for your summer wardrobe.

Design leaflets feature beautiful studio photography by Yuki Sugiura, clear instructions and visual schematics.

Studio Linen is made from recycled linen fibres, which are selected, undone and re-spun with premium natural linen to create a beautiful and unique recycled yarn. With a dry hand feel, cool drape and subtle sheen, a yarn that just gets better with wear and age.

An ancient fibre, recycled for a modern maker.

Inspired by the ancient Japanese resist dyeing technique of ‘Shibori’ four new colours for 2017 mimic the subtle hues of indigo dye.

Take inspiration from the infinite methods of stitching, twisting, binding and folding used to create distinctive Shibori patterns, and experiment with texture and colour in your knitting and crochet.
