Based on the Kent coast, Heather specialises in macramé, crochet and knitted textiles. Driven by a passion for craftsmanship and process, Heather's diverse textiles combine her fascination with materials and making with an experimental edge.
Our Heather Orr Home collections aim to incorporate traditional processes with a contemporary aesthetic, suitable for commercial or residential interiors, each piece is made by hand with bespoke and custom options always available.
With a focus on sustainability, recycled materials are sourced where possible such as our recycled cotton rope. Our range of up-cycled lampshades give old shades a new lease of life, discarded vintage lampshades are stripped back and knotted with silky soft tape yarn in a wide range of colours.
Heathers specific interests lie in the link between making, health and wellbeing. A desire to inspire others through teaching has led to a range of exciting workshops for students and creatives in partnership with others. Heather works with numerous educational institutions.
After graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2009 with an MA in Knitted Textiles, Heather went on to collaborate with Fashion Designer and fellow RCA graduate, Jane Bowler. Heather works closely with Jane, creating innovative pieces which incorporate her tactile fabrics and processes with the brands' trademark materials and diverse design aesthetic. The duo also run a series of experimental workshops in the settings of Jane's East London studio, sharing their passion for unconventional materials and experimental processes.
