From Brighton With Love was launched in Summer 2012 when Sally Evans moved to the city after many years living and working in the design industry in London. After reacquainting herself with the intricacies of a knitting machine she started producing cushions and poufs using natural yarns – mainly wool and cotton – although silk and linen may appear at a later date.
Some items use the intarsia technique which, although time consuming, produces wonderful 3d patterns that make the items very tactile. The colours are inspired by Brighton and the surrounding area – blue of the sea and sky, green for the South Downs and pink for the sticks of rock and candy floss! All cushions fasten with five shell buttons that enhance the seaside feel. The majority of items are made to order and bespoke colours and sizes can be made on request.
You can shop their collections and meet them alongside 70 other independent designers and makers at our next event at Shoreditch town hall.
