Who is HMS Grainger?

Having graduated in 2014, I went straight into industry experience with the leading designer of bespoke textiles in Northern Ireland. Gaining invaluable experience with her, I moved on to set up my own business.

In university I developed methods for working with natural materials to dye fibres using inspiration from colour specialists, the world of slow fashion and eco-chic design.

I have kept this blog for 4 years now and it has documented my journey through my studies and beyond. My personal research is varied and reaches a lot further than my practice.

I strive to keep my designs simple, refined and classic. Currently I am working on a range of silk scarves from my studio in Co. Down.
