Detta Textiles is the brand name of Irish born and UK based textile designer maker Berni Raeside-Bell. Berni creates fashion accessories and interior soft furnishings in 100% British-Spun Merino Lambswool and British Wool on vintage framework knitting machines.
Each knitted item is carefully knitted, washed, felted and hand finished in the studio. Her metallic print designs are based on her sketches around the British and Irish coastline and are hand screenprinted on to the finished knitted item and finished with metallic foils.
Berni has also developed a range of designs for wallcoverings and cushions for digital print. Her skills in both knit and textile print have allowed Berni to develop these unique products which are seen as one-off pieces of art and are numbered as such.
The Detta name represents the best in Heritage Craft Knitwear, inspired by our rich Island heritage.
