We made a wintery visit to Irish Knitter, Claire Anne O’Brien. Having admired her work from afar, we were delighted when she agreed to produce an exclusive collection for Makers and Brothers.
Claire-Anne is a textile designer specialising in knitting. Originally from Ireland she has recently graduated from the Royal College of Art and is working from a great little warehouse space in East London. Her work plays with technique and scale creating playful and tactile fabrics for interiors. There is a definite sense of her heritage in the work and wonderful use of colour.
It was very chilly in the warehouse but the tea was warm.
