Urban Art Inspiration
Christine Murphy made a career leap from working in luxury hospitality to grabbing a creative dream of becoming a knitwear and textile designer.
In her adopted home of Waterford city she immediately noticed and was drawn to old grey stone buildings being reinvented imaginately and expertly by adorned street art by Irish and International artists. Christine wanted to reflect these colour palettes in her own knitwear having being fortunate to work with beautiful hotels in reflecting their cultural landscapes through natural fibre knitted collections. All the time connecting with contemporary and historic creative Irish cultures.
Her passion was to work with Irish only manufacturer’s but the production capacity with her design techniques has not to date been fully available hence Christine works between an Irish and Dutch based manufacturing house supporting sustainable practices at their core.
