Line is an experienced designer and creative talent, originally from Norway, now based in the UK. Line enjoys making beautiful fabrics for fashion and interiors.
Line originally trained to be a Men’s Tailor, she moved to the UK in 2006 and studied at Farnham University for the Creative Arts, earning a first class BA Hons degree in Textiles. This is where she discovered her passion for weaving. After her time spent studying in Farnham, Line moved to London, which is where she began her career as a textile designer, building a career working for renowned textile companies with a worldwide customer base. Moving from London to Germany and now back in the UK, she is able to draw on a wealth of experience in both fashion and interiors, to produce unique, quality, statement work.
A highly skilled designer, who likes to combine a mix of fibres and materials to create bespoke textiles. Line makes work heavily influenced by her fascination with artisanal processes, which is clearly reflected in her most exclusive couture pieces. Her weaves with hand-cut strips of leather show her dedication to the art, and allow her to create textiles that channel her passion for hand-crafted perfection. She creates her own yarns using leather, weaves with strips of printed silks and creates details using fine feathers to create sophisticated hand-woven textiles that are contemporary but with strong ties to traditional textiles. Her work is versatile and can be used in fashion, interiors, accessories and home furnishings.
Line works on commission weaving under her own brand and as a freelance designer and consultant, more information under SERVICES.
