Exquisite wearable works of art
Sophie Digard is a French textile artist, whose work is distinguished by her delicate and truly unique approach to both pattern and colour. She sources the finest natural materials - predominately single ply Australian merino wool and fine Belgian linen – that are dyed to her specifications in a range of carefully selected colours.
A distinguishing feature is the incredible intricacy and workmanship of each piece. In Madagascar she works with local women to crochet and embroider the pieces by hand. By honing these women’s traditional handiwork skills and providing stable employment, her workshops provide a valuable source of income and stability to local communities and help promote and preserve their textile heritage.
