Harriet Hewitt
Graduate designer, specialising in woven design, I have a real interest in creating a more sustainable textile industry and love using new and innovative fibres and techniques. My final year project, comforting surroundings, has allowed me great freedom and has pushed me to try new things, designing for innovative automotive interior and accessories; problem solving to create something durable whilst also design responsibly. With creating two collections within my project, I have used great multitasking and time management skills to create two strong collections with quite different moods and colour schemes. I was awarded a scholarship by worshipful company of weavers, which has really helped me with exploring several avenues such as bio design, experimenting with new fibres and much more throughout my project. In the future I aim to run a small business which explores sustainability further and creates designs with longevity and comfort.
