Wallace Sewell

A highly individual woven textile design studio, established by Harriet Wallace-Jones and Emma Sewell, after graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1990.

The studio’s motivation is to design innovative woven fabrics exploiting industrial techniques, the collaboration thriving on a vibrant exchange of ideas from the dual perspectives of creating textiles for fashion and furnishings.

Work is distinguished by a positive and confident use of colours and an intelligent use of yarn properties and standard weave structures, producing exclusive fabrics of discerning appeal.

The studio works closely with a mill in Lancashire which weaves the larger pieces and batch production. The studio also works closely with a finishers in Huddersfield - W.T. Johnson & Sons - who draw their water from their own borehole in pursuit of the softest and purest water, perfect for textile finishing.
