We’re really excited to be featuring the supremely talented Rachel Parker in our very first monthly column – initially inspired by cross stitch, she made the leap to digital craft and is now a sought after fabric designer stocked in Liberty, Heals and Studio Four in New York. We just love her use of vibrant colour, pixels and geometric designs.
“Cross-stitch is perhaps the most basic form of embroidery and yet there’s something about the repetition of the simple marks, the building up of rows and the rhythm of needle and thread that really speaks to me” – Rachel Parker
We’d love these Northmore chairs in the office at Be Creative HQ – daily creative inspiration!
“’Northmore’ is a wild, free-flowing geometric pattern of pixelated shapes. It looks like something straight out of the space age, so people are often surprised to hear that it’s actually inspired by hand embroidery” says Rachel.
We love how you can see the inspiration of cross stitch in Rachel’s collection of prints.
Rachel’s wallpaper prints are as exciting as her fabric.
