- Product Details
A one-off wool pencil case, hand-knitted in one piece from black and grey Shetland wool in a traditional Sanquhar pattern. The interiors are lined with vintage Italian silk with a small Paisley print.
Sanquhar knitting is a distinctive form of Scottish knitting featuring two coloured patterns- developed in the late 1700s by the knitters in Sanquhar, near the Scottish Borders, to protect the local hand-knitting industry. Even though hand-knitting as a cottage industry died out during the 19th century, the tradition has continued.
Each pencil case has a tag with the exact pattern name on it. Some pattern names indicate a subtle variation in stitch pattern. Further information on exact stitching can be found on Tom's website.
About Tom of Holland
Tom van Deijnen from Holland is a self-taught textiles practitioner based in Brighton. Tom has a deep understanding of fabrics and their characteristics and traditional techniques used in mending them. Working primarily with wool, he favours the old and imperfect over the brand new, as it brings to light the relationship between garment and wearer that has developed over time, creating a piece of clothing that is as unique as the history that created it.
