Laine is a charming studio shop at the more peaceful end of St George’s Rd, which cleverly does several creative things from its cosy, pretty interior. Designer Claudia Hartley and her team can create bespoke knitwear to customers’ specifications. Laine also sells their own ready-to-wear knitted garments, accessories from Brighton-based artisans – and lovely wools. Check out their online store for knitwear and photos above for their beautifully embroidered denim jackets. After hours, Laine hosts small knitting and embroidery workshops, both for beginners and for those with more established needle skills.
