Nervous Stitch is the creation of Royal College of Art graduate, Jenny McHardy.
Having a humorous slant, Nervous Stitch's name comes from the emotional connection between people and textiles. We are passionate about knit and keeping traditional skills alive, while keeping these skills current and relevant for today. With this in mind, our inspiration for our collections comes from animals we love, and items we collect on our treasure hunting travels. The collection is knitted using British lambswool in bright and bold colour combinations. Our products are knitted on hand-operated domestic knitting machines and go through three stages of washing and finishing to produce a soft and tactile fabric.
Our products appeal to design conscious people who are interested in high quality products that are made in Scotland. These fuse a nostalgic illustrative look with strong evocative imagery.
Our studio is fun and colourful and we all enjoy listening to records whilst we work.
We love rabbits, the bunny rabbit repeat was our very first design. In the studio we have Rodger our real bunny rabbit, he is very cheeky!
