The core business of the studio is the design and development of woven textiles for the industry. By using a 32-shaft computerized handloom, Esther is creating dobby weaves with a keen eye for texture, pattern and colour.

Currently, she is working on a library of unique design swatches for upholstery, curtain and wall covering fabrics which are suitable for industrial production. Each sample is designed on the handloom and ready for mill development. All swatches are sold complete with copyright, technical files and yarn information.

The designs are viewable by appointment.

 

 

In addition to her work for the industry, Esther is able to create short runs of handwoven fabric for special one-off projects. This allows her to experiment with different types of materials and structures that cannot be woven on industrial looms.

If you would like to discuss a project or bespoke commission then please do get in touch.
