Texture explores Erika Knight's personal journey through the landscape of knitted fabrics as she examines the different habitats that have inspired her designs throughout her career. Broken down into countryside, city and coast, the core of this book is a compilation of simple knitting recipes that embrace the movement for 'slow fashion' and honour the process of craftsmanship.
