Melanie Porter is a true expert craftsperson! Born into a family of makers, she learnt upholstery from her grandfather, sewing and tapestry from her grandmother and spinning and weaving from her mother. Rather impressively, she still uses some of the tools used by generations before her.
Melanie has certainly made an artform out of knitting and is bravely spearheading the trend for giant knitting. Everything about her work above all says quality and expertise. Her oversized blankets, giant knit cushions and exquisite strings of hand-spun fairy lights are just a joy destined to become family heirlooms.
Wrap up on cosy winter evenings in one of Melanie’s sumptuous throws. Or simply drape it over the base of your bed for a touch of handmade luxury. You can also add a little magic to a child’s room with one of her personalised name rings. They’re absolutely charming with little hand-spun pompoms which they will cherish for years.
Moreover, if you’d like to add texture to a bed, sofa or armchair, why not invest in Melanie’s exquisite giant knit cushions? You can choose from her signature designs, or work with her on a bespoke pattern just for you. Just browse our shop or get in touch to discuss special colours or designs.
