Charity van der Meer

Charity van der Meer with her label Sharit, graduated in Fashion Design and Knitwear at the Nottingham Art and Design University in 2002. She moved to the Netherlands in the same year, where she worked in fashion and design independently.

Charity believes that felt gives her a wide range of creative possibilities, which she pursues by constantly researching and experimenting with new materials and techniques using natural textiles, raw materials and organic fibers.

“Felt has given me a chance to express myself beyond the conformity of the traditional felt making and dress making. There are endless possibilities and I am constantly researching new materials and new techniques. All material I use will tell their own story through my pieces.”

Her one of a kind creations are breathtaking combinations of natural fabrics, raw materials and organic fibers. Her commitment to enhance the sustainability of wool made her to create the Sharit Ethical Fashion line.

Her aim is to encourage and promote the use of this highly versatile fiber, named wool, used either in knitting or felting. She loves to share her knowledge of felting – with felt being the oldest technique – it is worth passing on.
