Nullarbor Nights Knitwear

Artisan-Designed & Created Knitwear and Accessories

Alice Leda Pettirosso has spent her whole working life dedicated to her textile work. She created her knitwear label Nullarbor Nights Knitwear in 1991 whilst living in a stone hut on the Nullarbor Desert in WA. She used a knitting machine powered by solar energy, and dyed garments in pots in her kitchen. Although her full-time work involves making knitwear she also enjoys making unique and quirky jewellery to complement her garments or to act as connectors for her Wraps and Coats. She believes an understanding of the materials is vital in order to bring out the best in the combinations she creates. Her hand-made items help to create a relationship with the wearer, therefore creating with positivity, love and optimism is a vital aspect of her work. Alice has taken her knitwear to Gift Shows in San Francisco and New York, and her Scarves and Wraps have retailed in stores in Sweden, Canada, Singapore, the US and in galleries throughout Australia. She helped set up the acclaimed gallery T’Arts Textile and Arts Collective in Adelaide SA in 2004 and has won an assortment of prizes for textile work, wearable art and design throughout her career. Alice has held workshops in printmaking for children, and brooch making to increase awareness of mental health Alice set up her textile studio in Queanbeyan NSW in 2006 where she is still creating unusual Knitwear and Accessories, and also exploring Digital Art
