Gertrude Sampson has been designing knitwear for over twenty years. Based in Dingle,Ireland for the past 17 years her work has continued to evolve and grow. She uses a mixture of Italian luxury yarns with traditional aran wool in order to reflect textural contrasts in our landscape along with natures colour palette. Her rule of thumb is that a piece has to make one want to touch it, gaze at it, wonder at it and ultimately wear it again and again. She believes a piece has to feel good, look great and suit the wearer in order to make the wearer feel good and reap the compliments.
The reason why Gertrude has been successful producing knitwear in Ireland, and selling it at home and abroad for over twenty years is thus: it makes people look and feel good.
