Olive 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 spirograph as a child she 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 are created with natural, fibres including cashmere, merino lamb’s wool, cotton and silk.
