'Glasgow' handwoven cashmere, lambswool & mohair

'London' handwoven cashmere, lambswool & mohair

Helen's wonderfully curated stand at Made By Hand, December 2011

Helen Foot is a recent RCA graduate who launched her first handwoven collection of seriously covetable scarves and cushions at Made by Hand in December. Exquisitely woven fabrics in various combinations of lambswool, cashmere and mohair are inviting to touch as well as the eye. Her composition of colourful stripes against more neutral backgrounds really appeal to me, and I'm looking forward with interest to seeing the new colourways and collections in the pipeline for 2012. Do also check out her blog to keep up to date with her latest news

At Made by Hand I also met Helen's brother Richard Foot, who in collaboration with Arron Fowler made this fabulous short film about the weaving process, featuring Helen of course. Enjoy......
