Mill Woven Product
All of the textiles are designed and sampled on a handloom in my North London home. The scarves and blankets are woven in Bristol by a micro mill as part of a limited edition run. As a reflection of my desire to create future heirloom pieces, I have produced only nine to eighteen of each of the scarf designs and four of each of the blankets. Set up in 2015, the Bristol Weaving Mill works on a small scale concentrating on accountability, traceability and sustainability.
Bristol Mill Weaving
Directors of their Bristol-based internationally acclaimed woven textile design studio Dash and Miller Ltd., Juliet and Franki had a vision that there would one day be a facility in the UK where a no-boundaries approach could be taken to fabric sampling and production weaving. After years of research, this dream has become a reality and The Bristol Weaving Mill is set to contribute to the UK’s historical lineage and tradition of weaving and manufacturing… with a twist.
Tucked away behind Brunel's famous railway station in the heart of Bristol, the Bristol Weaving Mill is a micro-mill with facilities for creating the most exclusive, bespoke and experimental fabrics imaginable for the international fashion and interior industries. With strong links with the world’s most interesting and innovative yarn suppliers, finishers and manufacturers, The Bristol Weaving Mill is an artisanal weaving-mill in the unique position to be able to supply an unparalleled level of creativity and innovation for both small and large-scale production runs.
The Bristol Weaving Mill’s signature collection is predominantly focused on wool and fancy tweeds, however, their creative and design led team have a background in hand-weaving for production that allows for a greater level of responsiveness when developing designs and fabric qualities. The industrial weaving looms and supporting machinery at The Mill have been selected with creativity and flexibility in mind to enable The Bristol Weaving Mill to create many different and varied qualities of cloth.
