Ebb-stanes and borderlines
By ‘drawing’ with wool, I use my latest knitwear collection, Ebb-stanes, to explore the meaning and use of line, both natural and man-made.
My father was Indian: in 1947 the Partition of India suddenly separated his family from their country. They became emigrants, instantly.
In my new collection, suggestions of paths, boundaries and contours are created through a simple line, wandering across a pattern inspired by Shetland’s landscape.
Ebb-stanes are pebbles revealed by a receding tide—a shifting, natural borderline.
