Beth Ranson is a knitted textile designer who explores sustainability within a variety of design contexts. She is a researcher in fibre, yarn and stitch structures.
Removing elastic and petro chemical based materials from her process, all Beth’s fabrics are biodegradable and functional through unique stitch structures and yarn combinations rather than synthetic stretch.
She experiments with adaptable knitted forms using ‘zero waste’ methods. Motivated by problem solving in sustainable design contexts, Beth occupies the space between knit technician and textiles designer: an interesting space to be.
