ABOUT ELEANOR BOLTON

 

Eleanor Bolton is a British designer based in London. Eleanor trained at the Royal College of Art and started her label upon graduating in 2010.  Known for her unique craft technique of coiling and hand stitching cotton rope to create sculptural yet lightweight tactile jewellery. Eleanor’s jewellery comes from her focus on an intuitive and sensitive approach to the micro details of making processes, as well as to the precise scale of the pieces. This attention to detail, combined with the innovative use of the materials define Eleanor’s approach and strong aesthetic appeal. Colour inspiration for the collections often comes from fine art and the bold use of colour and textile techniques marry to create statement tribal and nautical inspired jewellery.

In addition to her acclaimed jewellery collections, Eleanor has recently branched into the world of interiors producing a debut range entitled ‘Knotted Interiors’. Consisting of a range of handmade contemporary plant hangers, Knotted Interiors offers a fun, vibrant way to add colour and plant life into the home. Both collections are made in her east London studio where the focus is producing high quality hand crafted products.

Eleanor also loves to collaborate with other brands in the last few years Eleanor has worked with resort-wear brand Wéngko Molé on bespoke belts for their SS15 and SS16 collections and with cult British clothing label Folk on a range of jewellery for SS15.

Both jewellery and interiors collections have attracted attention from leading press including; Vogue Paris, British Vogue, ELLE, Vogue China, Marie Claire, The Guardian, The Sunday Times, Refinery29 and Icon amongst others.

Alongside Eleanor's main practice, she also teaches a variety of rope and textile workshops both at EB HQ and in partnership with others. Recent clients have included Hole & Corner Magazine, Darkroom, Port Eliot Festival, Topshop, Shoreditch House and the V&A.
