Jacqueline Kilmartin -Philadelphia PA
I create textile accessories & clothing for woman, using natural, sustainable & organic materials. Inspired by the reduction of floral forms, my designs are modern, yet feminine, incorporating soft pleats, fléchage shaping, eyelets & cable details, onto a mostly neutral color palette. Fiber choices are based on the hand & drape quality of a chosen yarn/fiber & how this quality will balance with the physical design of the piece. Each knit good is hand-loomed, with built-in shaping, & finished on the knitting machine. Each woven good is hand-dyed using low impact dyes & processes. Many designs are one of a kind or small series.
