Debbie believes in a simple and honest approach to design, where quality and utility are intrinsic.
In a modern world, handmade textiles bring a rare element of craftsmanship into our homes. They hint at other ways of life and offer the ultimate convergence of colour, texture and luxury. Debbie produces her textiles on a 50 year old Lillistina Loom, as well as tapestry frames and Harris Looms.
