I am a designer maker working with knitted, crocheted and printed textiles. Much of my inspiration comes from traditional textile designs and techniques, finding new applications for these in contemporary products.

                                                                                                                                                    

Rose Sharp Jones is a designer maker working with knitted, crocheted and printed textiles. Much of Rose’s inspiration comes from her interest in traditional textiles – how fabrics were made and used as well as their aesthetic appearance. Her work draws on traditional craft techniques, applying them to contemporary products.

Rose uses hand and machine knitting, crochet and embroidery to create textured fabrics. She also combines different textile techniques to create new and unexpected combinations of texture and colour. Rose frequently experiments with form, scale and materials, creating new applications for traditional textile techniques.

Rose’s textile designs are applied to a range of products for the home as well as a collection of wearable accessories. Environmentally friendly and sustainable yarns and materials, such as organic cotton and British wool, are used throughout her work.
