Chrissie is a designer-maker specialising in luxurious nuno-felted garments, accessories and home pieces.
Silks needed for her work are designed and created by Chrissie using silk-screen processes ensuring each piece is unique.
By combining traditional centuries-old techniques with a contemporary feel and design inspired by the bleak hills of her North Pennine home each piece is totally unique and made in the slow-fashion mode. Inspiration is also found in Chrissie’s travels as she teaches.
Each item is handmade in Chrissie’s studio at Farfield Mill in Cumbria.
Her dedication to her work enables her to offer a bespoke service.
