About Sally Nencini
Sally Nencini designs and knits lambswool cushions, toys and blankets and upholstery for the home.
I have always loved textiles, not only the design process but also making and creating.I have a long-held interest in handworked craft, surface pattern, texture and vintage textiles. I often draw visual reference from my love of vintage toys, especially the imagery and colours of early Galt and Abbatt wooden puzzles and picture card games. Using this inspiration I like to re-interpret designs for a contemporary audience.
From my earlier days as a fashion student, I have always enjoyed the design process. Through visual research, taking an initial idea to a finished product. Problem solving in both the pattern cutting and also the surface design is something I enjoy.
Originally from Co. Armagh, Northern Ireland, I set up my business at home in South East London in 2009. Having moved family life to Norfolk in 2014, I continue to work from my home studio in Norwich. I am very hands-on, as well as designing and making myself, I work with a small family run knitwear factory in Scotland. This allows me to keep all my production in the UK, outsourcing to support the local community and making sure the quality is as good as it can be.
