Sally Evans set up “From Brighton With Love” in Summer 2012 when she moved to the city after many years living in London, where she worked in the design industry. Having studied fashion knitwear, Sally decided to return back to her love of making things and started her knitted home accessories business. Everything you see here is made lovingly by Sally herself.
'I am a real “colour and texture” person rather than someone who likes a lot of pattern. As a result a lot of my cushions incorporate 3d techniques, which gives texture to the items and makes them very tactile. Some of these are achieved by using the intarsia technique and others feature unique twists'
Her new Horizon range is inspired by the view of the sea from her very own frontdoor, there is frequently a broad stripe of lighter colour where the sea meets the sky. They come in six colourways all inspired by Brighton and they range from the greens of the South Downs to the pinks of Candy Floss and Sticks of Rock that you buy on the Pier!
All the cushions fasten on the back with 5 shell buttons, which emphasises the seaside feel. The colours are influenced by Brighton and the surrounding area and are all made in natural yarns.
They totally give that summer vibe that one yearns all year round!
From Brighton With Love will be exhibiting at Tent London & SuperBrands, 18-21 September.
