KNITWEAR TO DELIGHT IN...
Just to let you know that due to the ongoing covid-19 crisis, my shop at Camden Market will be closed until further notice to protect my workers, my business and myself.
I will still be selling my work online while I can.
Sustainable Clothing has always been part of my ethos and my designs are both practical and beautiful - long lasting clothes, not fast fashion....
My knits are versatile and easy to care for.
All my garments are very precisely craft made here in England, most being made in my studio/workshop in Camden.
With no cutting of the knitted fabric involved in the process of making, my garments are durable and very individual -
I only stock one of each size and when we sell one, we will usually make another one to replace it, unless of course, I am moving onto producing a new design and shape to supersede it!
Added to which, I continue to make my special 'one-off' pieces personally, including my 'ArtKnit' cushions and my 'ArtKnit' dresses, which are made in my studio in Hackney.
We can also make my designs to order, if you have particular requirements...
Clothes that LOVE to be worn and admired...
As a designer/artist/maker of many years standing, I have been selected to be on the Crafts Council Makers Directory.
"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!"

"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."

"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."
