Wool and thread
The final designer I'm featuring from the Dulwich Artists' Open House event is Sally Nencini, whose products (and house) I completely fell in love with. Her knitted toys, blankets and cushions in 100% lambswool feature graphical patterns and distinctive London-inspired repeats of buses, taxis and soldiers. Her 'Draw' bags with integrated crayon holders are pure genius!
Besides the knitted collection, Sally also collaborates with her husband Peter to create the most beautiful upholstered furniture in linear embroidered patterns. I love this description from her website: "Each of Sally's bespoke upholstered pieces is a unique response to the vintage chair and its character; the story of its use and its user".
