I dream in pattern: Meet ‘Punto Belle’

If you had the chance to make your own print and design your dream pattern – would it be light and airy, small and pretty or bold and fun? ‘Punto Belle’ aka Lois would most certainly be described as the latter – bold, fun – with a little bit of aztec, crazy and beautiful all thrown in. Only 24, and with a degree in textile design Lois dreams of opening her own shop and designs beautifully handcrafted accessories out of her own patterned fabrics;

‘Since
I began Punto Belle I have dreamed about designing my own fabrics, as I
did study textile design at university I know that my skills of pattern
making couldn’t go to waste so, I cracked on and began designing. I
can’t tell you how much happier I am now I have my own fabrics, I
believe that this is a whole new chapter of Punto Belle and I believe
that good things will come from this decision. My first ever fabric
collection, called Go Geometric is just the start as I plan to release
new fabrics every season correlating with new colour trends and seasons
patterns.
