Sarah Parkes of Smalltown 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.

Beauty, 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. A beautifully rich medium that has boundless applications and potential.

Smalltown welcomes and relishes collaboration so please contact us to discuss your project ideas.

At Smalltown all pieces are carefully hand crafted and made to order by a small team in our Brunswick studio. Rope is sourced locally where possible and rope offcuts and spools are donated, keeping waste to a minimum.
