Collingwood-Norris design and make colourful luxury knitwear, using traditional skills and low impact manufacturing techniques to create accessories for men and women. Designer Flora Collingwood-Norris hand frames each piece in house, and carefully hand finishes them to ensure the highest quality.
Based in the Scottish Borders, Flora graduated in 2009 from Heriot Watt University (formerly the Scottish College of Textiles) with first class honours in Design for Textiles, winning the Doctor Oliver medal for best overall student of the year.
Learning to hand knit age six, Flora started crochet soon after. At university, she achieved the technical machine knit, fibre and garment knowledge to complement her craft skills and artistic flair.Flora has worked on several prestigious projects, with work appearing in London Fashion Weeks for Christopher Kane, Jasper Conran, William Chambers Millinery and House of Holland.
Preferring to use high quality lambswool, sourced in Scotland where possible, Collingwood-Norris’s approach is to encourage ethical practice and reduce environmental impact at all stages, from design to production. Working with the principles of slow fashion, Flora tries to bring out the best in traditional skills and natural fibres to create garments and accessories that you can cherish for a lifetime.
