  • Description

    This jacket is an odyssey. A series of paths taken in a journey through the pattern. Each Front and the Back are all different. The symbols are my own interpretation of the incredible Cuba cloths from the Congo that inspired my first design in 1990! I have used Fair Isle and intarsia techniques in the making and some vibrant colour choices to celebrate the richness of the pattern. It is worked in our own Lalland Lambswool.
