Inner Strength is a fashion design company specialising in lingerie, loungewear and accessories.
My work consists predominantly of corsets and pants, which I design and hand-make myself. My corsets are steel boned and can transform almost any figure. I manipulate and embellish fabrics to be used in my garments and virtually every piece is a one-off.
I work with fibre, using many textile techniques - weaving, netting, knotting, coiling etc, into woven tapestries, 3-D sculptural forms and small decorative baskets. I also make paper which is made into books, and combined with other natural materials and fibres to make constructed textile pieces.
Superior quality kilts designed and hand-crafted by Anne Grant, Fochabers, Scotland.
Anne is a designer and maker of hand built ceramics mainly working in porcelain.
Her ceramics are a personal and permanent response to places and the moments of randomness and impermanence that take place in them; often starting with a walk and including printing and writing haiku.
She is interested in collaborations, residencies and commissions.
My range of Organic 100% Pure Wool knitwear for children are handframed, machine knit and hand finished, entirely by myself, and are produced from wool which is undyed and unbleached, therefore colours and textures are natural, produced by the different pure breeds of British Sheep.
Annie lives and works in The Outer Hebrides where the landscape, colours and sights of the island inspire her use of Harris Tweed.
