    After studying Knitwear Design at Nottingham Trent University Jane worked in design studios within the knitwear industry before setting up a studio at home With the assistance of her partner Michael Hanmer, who has experience in the knitting industry, they produce all their own fabrics and products in their studio at the Harley Foundation. They knit with an extensive palette of fine merino and lambswool yarns from UK suppliers, producing attractive and durable fabrics in plain and patterned effects together with surface texture and blocks of colour in free stitching. All fabrics are wet finished and pressed prior to stitching and making into products, when they can be further hand washed or dry-cleaned. Jane and Michael are inspired by natural landscapes and colours, which are captured in photographs and sketches and translated into a unique collection of cushions, bags and interior accessories
