The Festival Collection

About this project

The Festival Collection is Helen’s first collection of handwoven scarves. Inspired by the colours and patterns of the 1951 Festival of Britain each scarf takes the name of a British city.

The collection has expanded over the years to include nine colourways which are; ‘London’, ‘Glasgow’, ‘Brighton’, ‘Swansea’, ‘Newcastle’, ‘Cheltenham’, ‘Edinburgh’, ‘Canterbury’ and ‘Plymouth’.

Each scarf is handwoven with cashmere, lambswool and mohair.
