Brooke Roberts

Brooke Roberts label explores and demonstrates the link between science and design. The collections are developed and created in Italy from the highest technology machinery and materials.
A visionary in the use of medical images as surface design, Brooke programmes her knitwear from x-rays and CT scans, body-mapping and contouring to achieve striking graphic effects through colour and texture. With several years' experience creating knitwear in Italy, she mixes yarns to great technical effect. Her knitwear combines cashmere, wool, cotton, silk, techno-plastic, metallic and retro-reflective yarns.
