Elin Manon is a designer specialising in knitwear. Her signature is repurposed clothing and materials from unusual sources. Elin values ideas surrounding material culture, domestic life, sustainability and sentiment towards clothing that can stand the test of time through our human emotions.
Elin purposefully shows construction details to eulogise the maker of the clothes and uses images relating to popular culture and the home. She attempts to bridge the gap between person and garment by creating ‘signs of human life’ on the clothes, a coffee stain beaded and embroidered to celebrate the usage of the garment and mending techniques such as darning to challenge our need for complete newness.
Hand crafted textiles are at the forefront of her designs, with a culmination of various techniques including hand e-wrapped knit, embroidery and hand painting: patchwork together with different wovens to create her aesthetic.
