French designer Sophie Digard creates the most exquisitely detailed, hand-crocheted, heirloom-quality pieces – scarves, necklaces, brooches, bags, baby clothes and blankets – that have long been treasured by clients and collectors around the world. Her work is so very beautiful.
Seriously, she crochets like nobody I’ve ever seen before and uses the most labour-intensive techniques to create her intricate pieces from fine wool, mohair, velvet, and linen.
Sophie Digard designs are available from selected retailers. In Sydney, you can find a few pieces at Calico & Ivy (with shops in Sydney and Perth). The very fabulous Selvedge Dry-goods store sells a good range online.
*It is because of the so very talented Sophie Digard that I have booked myself on a crash course in crochet (in May). I seem to be incapable of learning to knit. I’ll keep you posted on whether crochet is a better bet!
