KL Design Ireland Reveals Collection for Heals, London
NI designer-maker Katie Larmour's KL Design Ireland has recently launched an exclusive collaborative collection with the renowned Heals of London. The textile designer is featured on the Craft NI Directory, and her work is certified by the Irish Linen Guild.
Available from their flagship store on Tottenham Court Road, London and also online, this new Spring Collection from KL Design Ireland marks a bright point in Katie's blossoming career, as well as a fine addition to the prestigious, design-led retailer. Each contemporary patchwork piece is handcrafted in Ireland embracing traditional artisan skills, beautifully constructed and sewn with care and precision, and is inspired by a mixture of couture fashion, the artistic Dutch 'De Stijl' movement, history and nature.
Katie has said of the new collaboration, "Heals wanted something exclusive to them and so I designed brand new pieces. I am fascinated with the firm’s history and heritage and so I looked back to some of their archive furniture for inspiration’ and that’s where I found my minimalist shapes."
"In a world of mass production and throw away fashions each cushion produced is unique, every single one being a one-of-a-kind beauty, Heals of London champion the handcrafted and quality materials and so there was a natural synergy here, I am delighted to have collaborated with them."
Craft NI would like to wish Katie the best of luck with this new venture!
