‘Laura Fletcher Textiles’ showcases the work of Royal College of Art graduate Laura Fletcher – lover of colour and stripes, from zingy to subtle.
After freelancing for several years in the fashion and trend forecasting industry, Laura has designed a collection of woven home textiles, featuring beautiful stripe combinations.
The textile fabrics and cushions draw inspiration from the colours in Laura’s photography, finding beauty in the most subtle things, such as tree bark or weathered rope found on the beach. With a great eye for colour Laura works from her photographs to make yarn windings, working out colour proportions which translate into woven textiles.
The fabric is all woven at a traditional silk mill in Suffolk, using neutral backgrounds with highlights of stronger colour and a mixture of natural yarns to create subtle texture. The mood is serene but uplifting.
