'CLOTHES THAT LOVE TO BE WORN AND ADMIRED...'
For the time being, I am asking visitors to still wear masks for their own safety and for mine, as we are not out of the Covid-19 woods yet.
My opening times are Thursday-Saturday 11-5pm at the moment, but that is likely to change from time to time...
Please email me for an appointment, if you want to visit on a day when I am not open.
The good news is that I have most of my work online

I am now working in a very much more sustainable way, only making garments as they are ordered, which means you may have to wait a little longer for your order, though I will always try and get them to you within as short a time as possible, and keep you up to date with progress.
Quality Timeless Clothing has always been part of my ethos, my designs being both practical and beautiful - long lasting clothes, not fast fashion.
My garments are very precisely craft made here in my studio/workshop. Bespoke and custom-made, I can also make my designs to order to your requirements....specific measurements, different colours etc..
Please email me for an online or a studio appointment at
Penny Burdett Designer Knitwear, Camden Lock, London NW1 8AF.
I knit my special 'one-off' pieces, including my 'ArtKnit' dresses (above) and my 'ArtKnit' cushions, in my studio in Hackney.
As a designer/artist/maker of many years standing, I have been selected to be on the Crafts Council Makers Directory
Selling on-line is a very isolated way of doing business and customer feedback is essential to me as a designer running my micro-business.
Your support encourages me to keep going...
So thank you all for appreciating what I do!
"YOUR KNITWEAR IS SPECTACULAR, ALL OF IT, AND THE ONE THAT HAS MADE ITS WAY TO MY LITTLE HOME FITS ME LIKE A GLOVE. CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR MARVELLOUS PRODUCTS, THEY ARE ITEMS OF BEAUTY AND INSPIRATION!"

"I BOUGHT MY FIRST PENNY BURDETT SWEATER AROUND 17 YEARS AGO, AND IT BECAME A FIRM FAVOURITE.
TIMELESS, CREATIVE , QUIRKY, AND EXCEPTIONALLY FLATTERING!
I NOW HAPPILY HAVE A BRAND SPANKING NEW ONE.
IT IS A TESTAMENT TO PENNY'S DESIGN THAT THE STYLE HAS NOT DATED AT ALL. AND THE QUALITY IS IMPECCABLE.
I WON'T WAIT ANOTHER 17 YEARS FOR THE NEXT ONE!"
Susan / Sheffield, England
"I'M WEARING YOUR TOP ON A SUNNY SUNDAY MORNING!

"PENNY BURDETT KNITWEAR EXPERT, THE MOST AMAZING KNITWEAR DESIGNER I HAVE EVER SEEN. SHE CREATES ALL HER OWN KNITTING PATTERNS ON SITE AND MAKES THE GARMENTS IN HER SHOP/STUDIO IN CAMDEN LOCK. SO REFRESHING THAT THIS CRAFT STILL EXISTS. SO UNIQUE AND THE QUALITY IS SUPERIOR TO ANYTHING I HAVE SEEN IN LIBERTY."
Odette / Ireland
"...YOUR WORK IS SO INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL AND SHOULD BE AVAILABLE FOR MORE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD TO SEE AND OWN, BUT ALSO I THINK YOU DERIVE INSPIRATION FROM ALL OF THE HUMAN CONNECTION YOU HAVE IN YOUR STORE – SEEMS LIKE IT’S NOT JUST A BUSINESS FOR YOU – IT’S NOT “WHAT YOU DO” – IT’S “WHO YOU ARE” AND AN EXPRESSION OF YOUR LIFE SPIRIT."
Olivia / California, USA
"Over 25 years ago I bought this beautiful jumper in Camden Market. At the time I think it was the most expensive jumper I'd ever bought and that made it special. Since then it has been worn on so very many occasions becoming an absolute classic staple of my wardrobe - dress up, dress down, winter and summer. Finally, last week I had to accept it was past its best. Because I just loved it so very much, I took time to find you on the internet and replace it. I was so thrilled to find a very similar design - which arrived this morning. I will wear it with delight, and I am sure, for many years to come."
