Olive is a designer-maker specialising in luxurious, knitted accessories. Combining traditional techniques with contemporary design, she creates slow-fashion pieces with beautiful colour combinations. Fascinated by spirograph as a child she continues to explore repetition and applies that to her signature, small-scale, geometric patterns that play with perceptions. She finds inspiration in everyday things from manhole covers and zips to ripples in the sand and waves. Hand-framing on a vintage, manual machine in her Glasgow studio enables Olive to provide a bespoke service providing clients with unique contemporary heirloom pieces, made to last, created in natural fibres including cashmere, merino lambswool, cotton and silk.
