MARGIN

Woven Interiors Collection

Margin is a collection of upholstery fabric, window treatments and room dividers for a modern style home or office space. These designs encapsulate the modern features and abstract shapes and shadows I find in architecture. 

My designs are made out of organic cotton, bamboo and linen. To achieve sustainable and cruelty free window treatments I have only used plant based fibres. I have also tried different natural dyeing techniques.

I like to think of my work as being woven works of art because I am very interested in hand woven techniques and tapestries. I have also done hand applications within my work, which is important as it introduces that element of slow intricate techniques.

 
 

I titled my project Margin as it sums up the linear qualities within my pieces and it also represents the techniques used of extra warp and weft. On my large piece, I have a long black line running down through it that is similar in composition to a margin on a sheet of paper. I also have used an extra warp technique which means I have a second set of threads that I can bring in and out whenever I please. These threads are spaced out and inspired by lines within my work, from my photography, drawings to lined pieces of paper.
