Taunton-based 2008 Middlesex University graduate Emma set up Olive Rose in 2015.
The name is inspired by her daughters’ middle names.
She has a self-confessed obsession with the manipulation of a line. Using a Victorian lace craft called “Tatting”, she is able to manipulate a single line of thread into a complex structure.
This intricate textiles process involves knotting threads in particular ways, to form loops and lines. She stays true to the original technique, yet her designs have a contemporary feel.
Each design grows and develops through making, the threads themselves and colour are her inspiration.
