Shop Kopé London :

How do you describe to people what you do and your design style?

Kopé comes from the Greek word, ‘Perikopḗ’, meaning a cutting from a sacred writing. Kopé collections encapsulate our values, aesthetics and conversations with a global community of makers. Each piece by Kopé is from a larger material that passes through the lives and hands of many craftspeople and makers who have given their time and skills to make these magnificent pieces that we can love and care for.

Kopé connects their stories, creating the emotional value that infuses each piece. Kopé marries traditional craft techniques with global fashion as the finest products are crafted by the finest quality fabrics. Kopé collections currently include a wide selection of scarves and textile accessories like silk and linen bags as well as constantly working towards expanding into new product categories.

Kopé is not defined by any specific age group but by joy, confidence, style, and elegance. The design is inspired by traditional patterns which are blended with multiple colours and mixed in a unique contemporary way to provide impeccably designed pieces.

We unleash talent and endorse sustainable fashion with ethical sourcing.

5 Mins with British Accessories Brand David Watson

Shop David Watson Scarves :

How do you describe to people what you do and your design style?

Samuel “David Watson” collaborates with British artists sharing their love on the silk. All the designs are of British locations and scenes and are a mix of different mediums. Currently there are 18 artists involved and Sam is constantly looking for other artwork to artwork to add into the range. The artists are the core of the brand with their stories and photos accompanying the silk in the marketing.

What sort of comments do you get about your designs?

The lovely thing is that everybody likes a different design. I hope that the range of mediums and styles of artwork appeals to as many people as possible without loosing it’s British identity. People may have a favourite design because it depicts a favourite holiday spot, a commute, a dog walk or their home. I love that every time a silk is bought it gives a different story and memory for the purchaser…

What is your background

I have always loved art and fashion and this is a perfect way to combine the two. I have also worked in the Television industry so have always managed to wear clothes that have been a little different and express myself. (more...)

Sparrow Green Studios Chats To Independent Boutique!

Monday, September 9th, 2013

Today we're chatting to Katie Palmer, owner, designer and founder of  British scarf design brand Sparrow Green Studios. Her beautiful silk scarves are inspired by nature withsilk-turquoise-butterfly-scarf bees, beetles and butterflies featuring prominently in her designs. Read on to find out more about Katie's background, creations and plans for the future.......

How do you describe to people what you do and your design style?

I describe myself as a textile designer who makes scarves. I'd describe my designs as experiments in reflection, slightly kaleidoscopic with an influence from nature. I like that depending on how my customers wear their scarf, they can show off a different aspect of the design each time they wear it.

What sort of comments do you get about your designs?

I speak to a lot of my customers about wildlife, especially those interested in conservation. Many people love the fact that my designs are clearly hand drawn images and like the reflection and transition of colour I use in most of my work.

What is your background?

I studied printed textiles at the Surrey Institute which I completed in 1999. At my final show I was approached by an fashion agent who asked me to design textiles for fashion houses in New York. I produced two collections per year alongside a full time job as a retail sales manager and sold to various companies including Calvin Klein, Donna Karan and Armani Exchange. I have always loved to draw, so my recent work is a mixture of hand printed and digitally printed images taken from my drawings. I still make time to produce two collections per year for my agent and recently sold prints to Kenneth Cole and Gap Kids.
