Observation of and respect for the spaces and places we inhabit, and an appreciation of sensory experience influence Jessye’s practice as a designer/maker. Embracing a time-honoured process of making, each piece of knitwear is slowly crafted using hand powered knitting machinery. Jessye’s practice advocates value in the undervalued, and is an alternative to fast fashion, instead hoping to inspire a wider respect for our resources and remind us of the beauty in a reflective way of life.
Unique and tactile pieces of knitwear that subtly capture the organic colours and shapes of the Cornish landscape.
Designed for men and women, made to be worn and loved for many years.
