Bespoke fabric to suit your needs.
Below are some recent Lampshades
I've completed and more about the processes.
I can work with you on a certain colourway you have
in mind or I can simply create a design of mine you
like in a different size.
I'm happy to create one off pieces and multiple.
Please do just get in touch to discuss your preference.

This commission started off with this selection of colour from my samples.
From here I developed a structure of pattern by creating card windings, adapting them each time until the client and myself are happy to move forward.
Once the warp colours are all set up on the loom it is time to weave.
This part can change the look of the fabric so much, the weft colour is very important at this stage.
I tend to sample a few colours.
Initially we was going with Nougat, but I also tried Red Clover.
We both felt Red Clover was more striking, bringing the warm yellow tones out which the client has in her curtains.
Weaving the fabric, this particular piece was a meter wide by four 4 meters long.
The Final outcome.
Two large Coolie and one small Coolie Lampshades
Bespoke Lampshade for the kitchen.
I visited the clients home with various sizes of lampshades and swatches of colour.
We was able to work out the correct size for the room and colours, picking out and highlighting the beautiful painted cupboard colours.
This is a large 60cm diameter lampshade, 30cm in height
We used a white inner with a diffuser in the base
The first image you see here is a Lampshade from the 'Berry Collection'
A customer saw this design and wanted to change the colours up a little.
We added a colour and changed the order.
The Second image is the piece of cloth once it has come off the loom, these are the six final colours side by side, ready to be made into two different Lampshades.
The last two pictures are the final outcomes.
For this bespoke piece the customer had a clear idea of how she wanted her lampshades to look. We was able to decide the warp colours fairly quickly (these are the three colours going horizontal around the Lampshade) taking parts from a piece I have already woven but adding an extra colour.
Once we decided on this I was able to set the loom up and start sampling the weft colour (the colour that is woven through the cloth) I sampled five colours before we found the right tone.
