A HIGH END BRITISH KNITWEAR LABEL SPECIALISING IN WELL-CRAFTED ACCESSORIES AND HOMEWARE
Knitwear Designer Rosie Boycott-Brown founded her brand in 2013 and moved into her studio by Regents Canal in East London where she still works. Rose is passionate about designing unique, wearable knitwear and accessories for men, women, children & the home. The highly individual collection is made up of Lambs wool Scarves, Hats, Gloves, Blankets and Cushions.
Landscape, opposing environments and surrounding architecture inspire Rose's understated and linear designs. She uses traditional craft practises which force boundaries on some of her creativity but what forms is something that has been been carefully considered to create the perfect balance between functionality and style. A sophisticated palette puts neutral, grey tones in contrast with splashes of trend conscious colours.
Each item in the collection has involved a skilled maker, who is not without cost but is worth their weight in expert craftsmanship. The time and care put into our range is clear and noticeable, it has been created to stand the test of time so that items can be enjoyed year after year.
The fine knits and made from soft, Scottish spun & dyed Lambswool. Rose designs the whole range from her London studio, where some of our accessories are still made to order. Most of the items she produces are now knitted in a factory in North West England, who she has been working closely with for four years. Their small and skilled team make items with the same care and craftsmanship that was instilled from the launch of the brand.
Working with a strong focus on sociality and endurance, Rose invests in the high quality produced by British companies only to supply all the materials used to create the collection and in the day-to-day running of the business. Everything is recycled or re used where possible and all packaging is made from ethically sourced biodegradable materials.
Rose graduated from Winchester School of Art in 2010 and worked in the Fashion Industry where she enjoyed a career working in a team, designing knitwear for retailers in the UK and US. In January of 2013 Rose redirected her path and took up a design residency for a non-profit organisation called Awamaki based in the mountains of South Peru. She worked directly with women’s co-operatives and lead workshops to help give access to economic opportunities through developing and utilising their own knowledge and skills in traditional textiles. This opportunity gave her insight into the importance of craftsmanship and building a steady economy through the use of small local businesses. Upon her return Rose immediately started work on building her own socially conscious label and maintains her passion and enthusiasm for design and making.
