Textiles at The Basement
A mixed exhibition of contemporary Textile Designers , Gaby, Rhian and Abigail are all influenced by nature.
Based in the Countryside, Gaby takes inspiration from the beauty of her surroundings. Using this inspiration she is able to create unique hand woven fabrics, which she then makes into accessories and interior products. Each piece is designed, woven, washed and finished by Gaby, she is able to offer a range of products and a bespoke commission service.
Gardens and woodland walks inspire Abigail to design textiles that bring nature into the home with an interiors collection of linen fabrics and cushions, often embellished with embroidery. Produced joyfully with a passion for drawing, pattern and colour.
Rhian is an enthusiastic textile designer based in the Royal Forest of Dean. All products are designed, hand woven, darned, washed and tentered by Rhian herself, using traditional techniques throughout. Contemporary designs and colour placements are influenced by Rhian’s interpretation of surrounding environments that she finds inspiring. High quality yarn is sourced from a Mill in Yorkshire, creating truly British Luxury handmade products.
