Inspiration

Nestled in the far south-west of the British mainland, Cornwall is a coastal county steeped in rich heritage, where the ebb and flow of the sea shapes cliffs and lives of those that live there. This Cornish Fishing Smock-inspired knitwear draws inspiration from the timeless elegance of the traditional Cornish fishing smock with its classic features, including two generous pockets and the distinctive silhouette of the fishing smock, this jumper pays homage to the hardworking fisherfolk who have shaped Cornwall's history. The saddle shoulder construction adds a modern touch, enhancing both style and comfort, while the relaxed hem exudes an effortless charm.

Embracing the rich tapestry of Cornwall's textile traditions, the hem showcases intricate pattern work inspired by the iconic Cornish ganseys. These traditional motifs, passed down through generations, weave a tale of the sea, echoing the rhythm of the waves and the seafaring spirit of the region.​

These timeless shaped garments speak to the origins of clothing inspired by the sea. A silhouette to suit anyone and everyone. With each stitch, the SeaFarer's Smock weaves together a tale of tradition, nature, and the enduring allure of Cornwall's coastal treasures.

This fusion of traditional coastal motifs creates a harmonious blend, infusing the design with the very essence of Cornwall's coast. After back and forth set up the circular saddle shoulder yoke, knitd from the top down. Two large inset pockets are constructed and finally finished with a relaxed patterned hem, The neck is then picked up to create a fastening collar making even the most windy days cosy. The arms taper after a generous allowance of positive ease of 10-12cm around the top of the arms and shoulders.
