Using only British wool and fibres alongside wild harvested ‘non-harm’ silks, through smell, touch and the use of warm natural colours each bespoke woven item aims to connect its owner to the landscape it was made in - the wilds of the moorland and the beauty and magic held within these isles.

A special inclusion within the autumn 2020 collection is the use of 4 different fleeces from the sheep of Embercombe- a holistic education centre in Devon where Rose volunteered for 5 months and formed a deep connection to the Sheep of the land. The site at embercombe is sacred, and has been used for immersive programs and ritualistic events for over 20 years now- the sheep serve as a connection to that landscape and as a result their wool is both vibrant, hardwearing, beautiful and rooted in the story of these lands. These are one-off fleeces.
Rooted in sustainability, authenticity and wild creativity, Rosemary (Rose) Riedel O’Brien is a 21 year old Artist Maker living on the western edge of Dartmoor, Devon. In 2019 she completed a 6 month hand spinning and weaving apprenticeship with Imogen Di Sapia at Bright Moon Weaving Studio, Brighton. She has been developing her relationship to textiles and how they shape our identity for over 3 years now.
