With the goal of sustainable practice and engagement with British materials, Summer Fallow creates luxury soft furnishings using 100% wool.
Polly Griffiths specialised in Knit whilst studying Textile Design at Central Saint Martins. She focuses on colour as the forefront of her design, using a combination of colours in an abstract way to evoke certain moods or themes. After graduating in 2018, Polly was a recipient of the Cockpit Arts Haberdashers award.
She realised her design style felt most at home alongside independent designers who create bespoke pieces for interiors, and as such she founded Summer Fallow: a soft furnishings brand that creates capsule collections of knitted cushions and blankets with a focus on artisanal, slow craft, encouraging a sustainable approach to design.
Disagreeing with the concept of 'fast' design, Polly wanted to build a brand that disagrees with a wasteful design ethos. Working on bespoke pieces with high quality materials sourced from British suppliers ensures that Summer Fallow's environmental consciousness is at the forefront of the brand and the collections.
