Today I thought I’d share a handful of British textile designers whose work I enjoy. Classic, playful, sophisticated, inventive – I’ve tried to collect a little bit of everything. Enjoy.
Donna Wilson‘s ‘Cuddly Clouds’ made from lamb’s wool (what else?). Donna’s work makes me laugh – check out her ‘blah blah’ cushion (that’s pillow in American speak).
A gorgeous dragonfly pattern from the extraordinary Alice Stevenson. Seriously – how did she only graduate 4 years ago!?
A quirky yet sophisticated ‘Mousse Star’ scarf from Hikaru Noguchi. I love her work – they’re the kinds of pieces you’ll have forever.
Crafty illustrator Emily Sutton‘s incredibly popular songbird sculptures. I think we can expect big things from her in the near future, she’s still in college!
Hand woven woolen blankets by Eleanor Pritchard. These are so lovely and warm. We have the one on the top called ‘Quail’s Egg’ and it is a prized possession.
Mischievous dolls from Naori Priestly. Shame she forgot their arms.
An embroidered Battersea cushion from Snowden Flood. With a name like that – she was destined for success.
