Individual Textiles, Handmade with Time.

Biography

My practise aims to challenge people's pre conceptions of knitwear, its aesthetic and what it can become.

Continually inspired by my surroundings, I design using my experience of the world.

Olivia Holland is an award winning Textile Designer specialising in Knitwear.

Olivia was spurred on by her Art Foundation tutor at Camberwell College Of Arts to pursue Textiles. She went on to gain a first class degree in Textile Design at Chelsea College of Art and Design.
In response to her research on sustainability and emotional attachment, Olivia decided that she wanted to create her own vision: to make beautiful, timeless textiles, which are refreshingly new, transcend seasons, and become treasured forever.

Olivia started her business in 2015. She was a recipient of the Cockpit Arts/Haberdashers Award in 2017, and the Jill Humphrey Springboard Prize in 2018.

Olivia creates annual Textile Collections for Fashion. Her current product range consists of Scarves & Ties, and she also offers a bespoke design service.
