THE EMBROIDERY EX­PERTS HUNT & HOPE

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style The Britlist -

Needle­point’s slightly fusty im­age is about to have a ma­jor over­haul, thanks to Lon­don duo Izzy Hunt and Em­mie Hope. Their be­spoke pat­terns – think tiger stripes, cam­ou­flage mo­tifs and eye-pop­ping geo­met­rics – can be ap­plied to any­thing from head­boards to cush­ions, or the back of an an­tique chair. The only limit is their clients’ imag­i­na­tion – and pa­tience, as projects are made by hand and can take weeks to fin­ish. Prior to set­ting up busi­ness to­gether in 2015, Hunt and Hope had been friends for years. They still work out of a stu­dio lo­cated at the bot­tom of Izzy’s gar­den in Ken­sal Rise, north Lon­don. Head on­line to pick an ex­ist­ing de­sign or com­mis­sion your own piece ( huntand­hope.com).
