Swiss Darning

Flora Collingwood-Norris

Begg x Co has teamed up with Scottish textile designer and Swiss Darning Expert Flora Collingwood- Norris to offer customers a new customisation detail. The new service allows customers to add a handcrafted Swiss Darn detail to their Begg X Co scarf or Begg x Co Sweaters. The concept embraces the traditional darning technique of hand embroidery and uses traditional handcrafted skills. There is one “micro tartan design”  in two colours to choose from.

“Swiss Darning has become a passion of mine over the last few years. It’s such a creative way of giving clothes a new lease of life and making them completely personal and unique”.

"The concept of using Swiss Darning as a design feature is something I’ve always loved. It reminds me of the Japanese philosophy of Wabi Sabi. And although we are not “mending” anything here we are borrowing the idea from the world of Visible Mending” by adding another layer of craft and skill to an already beautiful design, accentuating and adding further detail."
