Founder, Michaela Carpenter, talks to Sotheby's about driving forces behind new collection

A recent graduate of Chelsea College of Art and Design in London who studied textiles, Carpenter remains closely tied to her own work – and keenly aware of the special, inimitable value of fine handmade pieces. “They look and feel differently from things that are manufactured,” she says. “You can see the human hand at work in them. I think that is what will ultimately keep us sane in a world that is increasingly manufactured and technology based.”
