Olive Pearson is a designer-maker specialising in luxurious, knitted accessories. Combining traditional techniques with contemporary design, she creates slow-fashion pieces with beautiful, clean colour combinations.
Fascinated by the spirograph as a child, Olive has continued to explore repetition and applies that to her signature, small-scale, geometric patterns that play with perceptions. She finds inspiration for her designs all around – in everyday objects from manhole covers to zips and in nature from ripples in the sand to waves.
Hand-framing on a vintage, manual machine in her Glasgow studio enables Olive to provide a bespoke service for her unique designs, providing clients with contemporary heirloom pieces made to last. All of Olivv’s creations are created with natural fibres, including cashmere, merino lamb’s wool, cotton and silk.
