Design - Donna Wilson

Do you know Donna Wilson? I didn’t! How come?
She set up her company in 2003 after making odd knitted creatures for her final show at the Royal College of art. The creatures sold out and since then she has built her business designing and making a collection of many products for home. Originally from Scotland, Donna runs a studio and workshops in London.
Wilson’s knitted creatures “ are inspired by the everyday oddities and deformities of life. She likes to think of each of them as a character in her very own wonderland—a place where you could stretch out on a sea of pom-poms, have a picnic with a poodle, or get grumpy with a ginger man. “
Donna Wilson was chosen as British designer of the 2010 Year by Elle Decoration.
