Sophie is an East Anglian textile designer specialising in woven textiles. Her designs and fabrics are focused on pushing the boundaries of colour and pattern to create contemporary fabrics for interiors, bringing a modern aesthetic to an ancient craft.
Sophie graduated from Loughborough University in 2019 after studying Textiles: Innovation & Design. Throughout her degree she specialised in woven textiles and learnt many skills, from designing fabrics, dyeing yarn and loom dressing.
Sophie’s fabrics are designed and hand woven to order using a 16 shaft Ashford table loom at her home studio. Predominantly using natural fibres, Sophie’s work is typically influenced by the endless possibilities that colour creates. It is the most unexpected perfect colour combinations that draw inspiration, often the materials that she works with inspiring the designs on the loom - and also from the weaving process itself.
Sophie and her woven products have featured in the National Young Traders final 2021, resulting in her being awarded Arts & Crafts Trader of the Year.
