Established in 2013, BertyB is a Scottish design company that creates bold, unique printed textiles that celebrate the perfect imperfection of the makers mark. A pattern maker at heart with a natural mid century aesthetic, I am particularly influenced by the post second world war textile movement and Scandinavian design.
“Imperfection makes something better than perfection because it is individual”
‘I am passionate about incorporating hand created elements into my work and build up my prints organically through hand silk screen printing. I believe an irregularity within a repeated pattern breathes life into the structure as it gives us something to investigate and interact with. I particularly like to focus on the new trend that shuns mass produced and promotes slow fashion and the ‘Glitch’ in an object that makes it truly unique.
After graduating with a First class Honours degree in printed textile design from Duncan Of Jordanstone College Of Art in Dundee, I knew that what I really wanted to do was work for myself establishing my own design label and BertyB was born.’
‘BertyB was only launched 6 months ago and there is still a lot of work to do in marketing and generating clients. I am now working on new designs for New Designers One Year On in July, Christmas exhibitions and ‘Craft’ at ‘Top Drawer’ which I am exhibiting at in January 2015.’
