I Spy - Lambswool loveliness with Sally Nencini

One of the greatest joys of Sisters Guild is discovering. We endeavour to bring you a collection of the curious, the wonderful, the creative, and most beautiful pieces we can find. 
One of the hardest aspects of Sisters Guild is keeping quiet. Because when you fall in love you just want to shout it from the highest hills, you want to share the beauty of it with everyone as far as you can reach. But, wait we must until the time comes when yes we can shout out 'I'm in love'.

Now, with the much awaited arrival of our newest architect of creativity we can share our passion with you!

Nesting beautifully amongst our twenty five lovingly and carefully selected designers you'll find a rich tapestry of textiles with sumptuous cushions and vintage inspired toys reminiscent of the early Galt and Abbat puzzles and picture card games.
These are the marvelous makes and designs of Sally Nencini.

Sally Nencini is a mother of three and London based designer. Sally studied MA Fashion at the Royal Collage of Art and went on to design for, amongst others Levi's and M&S.

With the influence of motherhood her long-held love and interest in 'handworked craft, surface pattern and vintage textiles has come to the fore.' With her children now at school Sally has begun to let go of the creations in her mind and bring them to life with knitted toys and cushions using soft lambswool. 
Machine knitting using her own patterns Sally's creations are wholesome, fun and ticklishy bright with an heirloom quality that we love. 
It is easy to detect Sally's love of vintage toys in the colourways of the pieces and the use of geometric patterns, and yet the soft lambswool and contempory shape motions to a modern feel with an inclination for nostalgia. 

With pieces like the 'draw bag' inspired by days out with her own children and soft cuddly 'Monkey Long Legs', (already on our childrens' wish-lists) and the soft wide-eyed 'Owl' with embroidered beak we know these wonders will become the firm favourites of little hands. Whilst the cushions will be perfectly placed in both the childrens room and in all your favourite spots around the home. There is no doubt that Sally Nencini will become a name you'll want to invite into your home as you fall in love along with us.

We invite you to discover with us the wonders of the designs and creations of Sally Nencini and, with all her work hand made here in the UK we are proud to support more great British talent
