Sarah Parke

Sarah Parkes creates unique knotted works that defy tradition, pushing macramé firmly into the present and the hand-crafted into high design. Founded in 2008, Smalltown has grown into a boutique practice that creates select, made-to-order products and large scale custom knotted installations for a wide variety of private and commercial clients. Wonder, integrity and timeless craftsmanship are at the core of Smalltown’s practice, and a belief that textural and tactile pieces can enrich our spaces. Parkes believes knotting is a craft of contrasts - strong yet delicate, perfectly imperfect, detailed yet simplistic, feminine and masculine, and traditional yet contemporary—being a rich medium of boundless applications and potential.
