As a weaver and textile designer I create collections of luxury accessories including scarves, cowls and shawls. Production is small scale with most pieces being totally unique making perfect luxury gifts. Whether it be a snuggly scarf, a cosy cowl, a sumptuous shawl or a mens tie these pieces all provide a special style. My aim is simply to produce wearable pieces of art which will become a treasured and well-worn accessory.
I weave on a large 8 shaft floor loom and smaller rigid heddle looms using predominantly natural resources. My woven fabric is most often produced using merino lambswool or cotton but some fabric is woven using yarn which I have hand processed and spun, from local sheep and alpaca fleeces. A favourite design is deflected doubleweave, where coloured yarns are interchanged to give a reversible pattern with a striking colour block appearance.
