Collaborating with Clare McEwan

I have recently collaborated with designer C F McEwan (click on the link to visit her website) using her latest range of fabric to create a classic clutch bag.  Clare is a freelance designer who uses digital photography and print media within textiles.  This incredible fabric is made from hemp and silk and has been a complete joy to work with.  The texture and feel are so unique and luxurious it adds yet another dimension to this clutch bag.  Using her beautiful fabric, Clare has created a range of stunning scarves which are well worth a browse.

About the fabric creation

With an interest in surface, shape and layer, Clare makes use of a variety of materials in her work. Drawing, printmaking, hand stitching and simple making processes are combined to create abstract and atmospheric imagery. Irregular shaped objects are built using paper, fabric and plastic.

The textiles, objects and surfaces are photographed with different arrangements of lighting. Clare often selects materials with some translucency, like greaseproof paper, sculpting with these materials to find shapes within the translucency. Objects made create unusual silhouettes cast onto back-lit surfaces – which are then photographed.

You can read all about Clare here; her website gives all the details of her work, collections, blogstockists and how to contact her.  There is also a link to her homepage in my Links I Love section.

Bags made from Clare’s fabric are available to order.  See Contacts page if you want to get in touch.

    • Glad you love it, it will look fab with the matching scarf! Next project is the Classic Clutch, so looking forward to seeing how the colours in the fabric work with that design. E
