Since 1999 French designer Sophie Digard has been creating unforgettable pieces of clothing and jewellery. Her creations are a look towards nature and artists such as Gustav Klimt for inspiration.
The yarn is dyed by hand using vegetable dyes in France. Each piece makes use of up to sixty different shades, plied together to create the subtle variation of tone.
The fibres are then shipped to Madagascar where Digard employs local women to crochet and embroider the pieces. Digard works to fair trade principles and her workshops provide a valuable source of income to her employees whilst nourishing traditional textile skills.
