Alice Starmore: "On a visit to a museum in Helsinki in 1978, I saw an old sweater which was labelled as a fisherman’s tunic from an unspecified Baltic country. It is the only fishing sweater I have seen that featured both textured and coloured patterns. Baltic, with its colour-patterned trims and textured body, is based on this effective idea."
