Purpose

Super String Theory Design is a studio that designs, develops and fabricates textiles for diverse applications–to live, wear, experience, perform. We genially accept commissions and private label.

Life

I am the descendent of 3 generations of dressmakers and tailors; textile creativity was my inheritance. I have been involved in the formation of some kind of fabrication, be it clothing, home textile or art, since childhood.

My experiences in the field have been wide-ranging; but my feet or rather hands, have never varied too far from the path set out before me by my ancestors. 

Work

I am involved in the entire journey of fiber and fabric – from sourcing and preparation to its transformation across a range of textile activities – spinning, knitting, crochet, weaving, construction, dyeing and embellishment. Each of these mediums also present numerous paths to explore. I am technique driven, possessing a large vocabulary of styles; it is the language of the maker, and the process that leads me to discoveries for myself and a rich palette of creative solutions for my clients.
