Inspired by the infinite variation found in the natural world and by memories of her childhood and her travels, Sophie designs pieces that are literally wearable works of art. From whimsical crocheted flowers and tiny woollen pompoms to contemporary abstract designs; her collection is as vast as it is diverse. Sophie sources the finest natural materials - predominately single ply Australian merino wool spun in Italy and fine Belgian linen – which are then hand-dyed in France, using vegetable-based dyes, and shipped to Madagascar where Sophie employs local women to crochet and embroider these beautiful fibres into the works of textile art they eventually become. Digard works to fair trade principles and her workshops provide a valuable source of income to her employees whilst nourishing traditional textile skills. Sophie Digard scarves, jewellery and bags can comprise of up 60 different shades - the beautifully coloured threads plied together and then crocheted into gorgeous creations, each one with its own subtle variation of tone, each one utterly unique.
