Young British designer Ellen Calvert combines familiar and homely textile crafts with vintage cloth to create original, upcycled products for the home. I love these satirical motto samplers created from vintage handkerchiefs and embroideries. In a take on the traditional "Home Sweet Home" samplers she over dyes and hand embroiders the vintage fabric to give it new life then screen prints mottos onto the work.
Her current collection Honey I Stole your Jumper includes quirky wall pieces, handknitted cushions and knitted school chairs.
One to keep an eye on!
