Hello - I'm Holly. I'm the founder, designer, pattern drafter, cutter and seamstress for pocket.
I started working on pocket full-time in July 2019, after returning home from seven years living in New Zealand. Whilst I was across the pond, I attained a Bachelor of Design in Fashion from Ara Institute of Canterbury, alongside working in the textiles sector of the industry.
When I came home, I felt a necessity to utilise my skillset to try out a different, slower approach to making & using clothing. And thus, pocket was born.
I'm passionate about re-kindling the relationship between maker and wearer, to keep alive the art of making clothes and champion the skill involved in the process. I believe clothes should tell a story
