About Me

Personal Statement

INTO produces a collection of individually knitted lifestyle accessories, engineered to a unique aesthetic, infusing lucid patterns with elaborate decorative elements. Established in 2004, INTO was conceived by the designer-maker Lorraine Linton, a graduate of the Scottish College of Textiles.

INTO designs begin with graphic, pictorial jacquards or simplistic geometrics constructed from lambswool yarn. These surface patterns, enhanced with vibrant colour palettes, are boiled to provide a stable structure suitable for bags and hotties. The addition of organic embellishments grown from manipulative felting techniques help create eccentric egg cosies, woolly jewellery and irregular scarves. By exploring scale, traditional components become exaggerated. Scarves are skinny with large bobbles and beaded necklaces develop overstated proportions. The result is a unique and light-hearted creation exploring unusual knitted applications.

Year Established: 2004
