Description

When the team from Bristol Weaving Mill asked if I wanted to keep the cut-off selvedges from the Bristol Blankets last year, my answer was “Hell yeah!”.

I wasn’t going to see sacks of colourful fibres going into land-fill, no way!

Initially, I thought I might weave them into rugs, but anything I wove would be too much of a contrast with the intricate textiles at the heart of my practice so that idea didn’t excite me enough to pursue, (and I couldn’t see the day when I’d get around to sampling that option either).

The lightbulb moment came when I was drafting preparations for this year’s Made in Bristol Festive Gift Fair at The Bristol Beacon. To complement the luxury woven textiles I sell at events like this, it makes sense for me to have a product at a lower price point too. After all, I’m on a mission to bring uplifting colour to as many people as possible and my notelet sets sell really well at in-person events.

And so I’m delighted to introduce The Woven Wheel of Colour, or Circle of Happiness, depending on which day you’re visiting my online shop.

A decorative textile wreath to brighten up the lives of colour lovers.
