Tess Young
Tess Young lives in the north west of England with her partner, 2 rescue dogs and 2 rescue cats. These companions enrich her life immeasurably, bringing great joy and plenty of exasperation; she’ll leave you to decide which brings which. For their part they often see Tess disappearing into her stash of yarn, vintage patterns, textiles and haberdashery, often to the sound of ‘ah’ ‘ooh’ and ‘argh’ as pretty and precious items are either rediscovered or declared ‘lost’. Tess’ designs are influenced by the south coast she grew up on and the north west coast on which she now lives. Her shared love of mountains leads to summer road trips and much hiking in Europe. These landscapes influence how she thinks about colour, form and structure, and function and wearability. However, Tess also loves the built environment and how we can build striking design into our everyday lives through mindful consideration of the spaces we inhabit. This too, she aims to capture in her designs, inspired by often fleeting experiences and lasting memories.
