Eva the Weaver

Eva the Weaver

Handwoven, unique accessories made from upcycled materials.

Biography

My inspiration comes from the pre-loved fabrics that I find in antique and second-hand shops. On my loom I weave fragments of these upcycled materials into abstract patterns and structures.

Eva’s aim as a designer is to create one of a kind, statement pieces that have as little impact on the environment as possible. Her use of pre-loved materials in her weaving results in a unique product retaining memories and associations from the past.

Eva’s design process is led by the upcycling of textiles and yarns she finds by chance, giving her work an element of spontaneity and fun. She arranges the materials she has collected into different groups, working out combinations of colours and textures for an eye-catching design.

As well as creating fashion accessories and homeware items, she is also interested in customising already existing clothing with her colourful, tactile style.

Eva and her Don Porritt Loom are based at her studio in Holborn.
