Distinctive and colourful knitted fashion accessories for men, women & home by knitwear designer Layla Chelache. Handmade in London, each piece makes use of the finest yarns in a trademark palette of graduating colours to create unique but wearable pieces. In 2015 Layla was named Textile Designer of the Year by Aspire Magazine.
“I have my Irish grandmother to thank for kick-starting my obsession with and adventures in knitting. A prolific knitter of Aran jumpers and cardigans, she taught me the basics when I was just six years old and I am still in awe of her skills with the needles."
Studying Fashion Design, followed by a BA in Constructed Textiles, Layla set up her own business after working in varied roles in the Fashion industry. "More than anything I love colours and textures. For me there is no better way to express this than through textiles. Knitting, in particular, gives me the potential to really play with the construction of the fabric and exploit its sculptural qualities."
