Sally Nencini has always loved textiles, not only the design process but also making and creating.
She has a long-held interest in handworked craft, surface pattern, texture and vintage textiles. She often draws visual reference from her love of vintage toys, especially the imagery and colours of early Galt and Abbatt wooden puzzles and picture card games. Using this inspiration she re-interprets designs for a contemporary audience.
Originally from Co. Armagh, Northern Ireland, Sally set up her business at home in South East London in 2009. Having moved family life to Norfolk in 2014, she continued to work from her home studio in Norwich. She is very hands-on, as well as designing and making herself, she works with a small family run knitwear factory in Scotland. This allows Sally to keep all her production in the UK, outsourcing to support the local community and making sure the quality is as good as it can be.
