scar kennedy

Scar Kennedy is a non-binary knitwear designer inspired by sea creatures and the natural world. Using hand-manipulated machine knitting techniques, Scar created 3D sculptural textiles. These textiles emulate organic forms, spikes tentacles, nipples, barnacles. Using natural materials such as mohair and lambswool allows the pieces to be felted creating an animalistic texture. The pieces are designed to heighten tactility, to encourage the 'reach out and touch', to interact with the topography of the fabric. All yarn used is deadstock to ensure sustainability, plus the process of machine knitting ensures a watse-free design process.
