Sally Nencini studied fashion at the Royal College of Art and has always had a very strong interest in textile design and pattern. Her end of year collection was based on fairisle knit designs from 1950’s skiwear.
Since working in the fashion industry and having 3 children she has continued her love of creating by designing and making machine knitted toys, blankets and cushions using soft lambswool. Sally has also trained as an upholsterer, hand embroidering the top cover of chairs to create functional works of art.
Her love of vintage toys, especially the imagery and colours of early Galt and Abbatt wooden puzzles and picture card games show as a big influence in her work.
All her work is hand made in the UK.
