Shetland is Woven into Nielanell’s Knitwear

Designer Niela Nell Kalra of the contemporary Shetland knitwear company Nielanell is inspired by the islands’ textile heritage, while following her own design path influenced by place, history, world culture and a passion for colour, shying away from trends in favour of the relationship between wearer and knitwear.
