Sally Evans set up From Brighton with Love after moving to the city in summer 2012.
After trying out a knitting machine on art foundation course she was hooked and went on to do a degree in fashion knitwear at Leicester Polytechnic (now De Montfort University).
Sally then spent the next 30 years in the London design industry working on everything from art directing Mothercare photo shoots to organising brainstorming days for some of the world’s biggest soft drinks manufacturers.
Made in Brighton from pure wool and cotton
All her products are made at her home in Brighton and use pure wool or pure cotton and are finished with shell buttons which enhance the seaside feel. The colours used are inspired by Brighton and the surrounding area. Sally uses techniques that mean the majority of her products have a 3D quality to them which makes them very tactile.
Sally can also do bespoke colours or sizes at an additional cost.
All items are handmade in my studio using natural materials and in colours inspired by Brighton and the surrounding area. The cushions, poufs and throws are either 100% wool or 100% cotton with the cushions fastening with shell buttons for a seaside feeling. My two styles of beach bags are knitted in 100% cotton and have a waterproof lining for your wet swimming things! Of course they don’t have to be used for the beach and are great for everyday use. The “Cats” and “Birdys” in three different sizes are aimed at children of all ages and are equally popular with adults! The smallest size (Tiny Kitty & Tiny Birdy) can be linked with the loop and the popper to make a long string to hang by a child’s bed or cot or even hang on a pushchair.
Oscar the seagull
“Oscar the Seagull” now has his own range of products, as he is obviously far too cute to be confined to the label only! These include tea towels and shopping bags in 100% cotton and bone china mugs, guaranteed to cheer up your morning cup of tea! I have also just designed a range of cards in three colourways Silver, Turquoise and Pink on Kraft Card.
The latest addition to the range is “Oscar’s Friends”. Adorable felt seagulls with long knitted striped legs in three colourways, Candy, Lobster and Lagoon. “Oscar” is a little envious of their long legs as his are definitely on the short side!
The range is constantly growing and evolving and also includes seasonal items such as Christmas Cards and Christmas tree decorations.
Most items are made to order although I do try and keep at least one of each item in stock, so delivery may be up to three weeks depending on the number of items and complexity of the design! I am also happy to do commissions and bespoke colours to suit your interior.
