About The Artist


Julie Colquitt examines the world through her crochet hook producing large scale textile installations and crochet sustainable fashion.
She is a Scottish crochet designer with beginnings in the bright lights of Fife.
Mental exasperations form her work and the love of a cruel free and sustainable yarn. Her aim is to work with traditional crochet techniques to produce unique and imaginative designs innovating and creating links between fashion and art, focusing on silhouette and contrast.
Her designs have been seen on the runway at New York Fashion week.
Magazine highlights include front page of Vogue fashion pages, Wallpaper*, Hunger, Grazia India, and more. 
Mediums include organic Eri and Muga rare silks, natural fibres recycled plastics and textiles from the clothing trade, spray paint on waste silk. 
Julie also creates wearable art sculptures crocheting her world around a body. (see press page).
Materials for her crochet textile sculptures and innovative clothing come directly from groups of women in Northern villages of India who she has worked with for over 12 years producing unique and rare sustainable and vegan yarns which she uses in her pieces.
With her travels to India she also supports their local schools and funding. On occasion she can be found making yarn alongside them working with their traditional tools. Hands!
