Bold textures and innovative thinking takes knitting to another level.

Claire-Anne O’Brien is a textile designer specialising in you guessed it ……  knitting. Her work plays with technique and scale creating playful and tactile fabrics for interiors. This sculptural approach to textiles brings fabrics to life in three dimensions through form exploration and furniture.
What I am most attracted to is her exaggerated scale combined with bold colour and texture, although her work has a playful quality I find her pieces are classic and timeless.
