London based designer Naomi Paul creates some truly unique and intelligent textiles for interior products and spaces. Here is a selection of her beautiful crocheted and knitted works.
About : “An expert in combining vintage and charity with contemporary items in her own life, her designs are created using a range of recycled, upcycled, organic, industry waste and British luxury material. Through physical exploration of the yarns constructing and deconstructing ideas Naomi’s designs evolve organically, forming pattern through structure with a subtle sophisticated use of colour. Inspired by traditional craft techniques and the emotional attachment we all hold to materials, Naomi explores the possibilities of knit and crochet for interior application both for the home and commercial settings.”
