Clare McEwan at Selvedge Fair Winter 2012

 Clare McEwan's scarves, Selvedge Fair, Winter 2012
Clare has a strong ethical policy in her work and a committment to use eco fabrics; she is involved with the Ethical Fashion Forum. She uses hemp fabric mixes: hemp according to Clare, 'enriches the soil on which it is grown, grows well without herbicides and pesticides and uses only 20% of the water needed for cotton growing'. Her designs are abstract, created from photographs of textiles, objects and different surface techniques and she uses a range of natural earth-tone colours, mixed with flashes of brights and black and white.
