ABOUT

Paula Kirkwood About 2

I’m Paula, founder and designer here at Paula Kirkwood.

I’ve worked in fashion and textiles for the past twenty five years and have always placed craftsmanship and environmental ethos at the centre of my practice.

For ten of those years, I worked with Traid, a textile charity that turns clothing waste into funds and resources that reduce environmental impact.

I ran their in-house studio TRAIDremade, creating clothing and accessory collections for both men and women from reclaimed fabrics and industry end of rolls. This position embedded a sustainable mindset into everything that I create.
