Therapeutic Textiles

 

Using medicinal plants in material and dye form to create textiles that provide therapeutic benefits. The dyes used in clothing can be absorbed into the body through your sweat; by replacing chemicals with natural and medicinal plant dyes, we can benefit. For example, specific plants can be used to aid skin irritation or arthritis.

Graphic Design

 

As part of the Natural Lifestyle project, two booklets were designed and printed: one an informational handbook, the other a portfolio/catalogue. Illustrations were made using Adobe Illustrator and a photoshoot was organised for the catalogue. Copy was written by myself.

Alongside this, I designed and created my own branding. This includes the logo, business cards, any promotional materials and the website (designed and built on Wix).

Isobel Wylie Hutchison Collection

A knitwear collection inspired by the Scottish

arctic explorer and botanist, Isobel Wylie Hutchison, for Carlowrie Castle, Scotland.

The soft merino silk scarves are inspired by Isobel's travels to Alaska and feature dyes native to the region. Whereas the woollen jumpers focus on her time at her ancestral home, Carlowrie Castle, in Scotland. The wool was sourced from a Scottish mill and dyed with heather, all to produce a design inspired by the architecture of the castle.
