I love the colour and texture of woven fabrics…

I love the colour and texture of woven fabrics, the feel of individual spun yarns, and the handle of the fabric. I have learnt so much designing the eight woven Scandinavian fabrics in this collection. There’s a strong Nordic theme to these Scandinavian fabric pieces, from my Lapland Stripe which evokes the simple landscapes and rural life of the Sami people in Lapland, to the more contemporary feel of my Scandi Stripe, which I have designed in two bold colourways. Baltic Stripe is a stylish IKAT print and Nordic Stripe introduces a warm chestnut brown I have called 'Reindeer'. 

Made from 100% Linen, this is a beautiful collection of timeless woven stripes, the pattern is integrated into the fabric through weaving rather than printing.The 100% linen yarns are dyed and then intricately woven together.

Made from 100% Linen, this is a beautiful collection of timeless woven stripes, the pattern is integrated into the fabric through weaving rather than printing.The 100% linen yarns are dyed and then intricately woven together.

The Ikat part of the stripe (a characteristic of ikat fabrics is an apparent irregular "blurriness" to the design) is created here by screen printing the colour onto the warp (north to south) threads, and then the weft (west to east) is woven across them producing the irregular and famous Ikat shapes. These linens are hand loomed with incredible expertise and love.

We can make all these into curtains, blinds, cushions and lampshades through our Made to Measure service.
