FABRICS AS ART

Since their inception in 1928, Edinburgh Weavers has put concept and artistry first. Their most renowned director was Alastair Morton, the third generation in the Morton textiles dynasty.

Inspired and tutored by his father and grandfather before him, Alastair took the reins in 1931 and boldly set out to fuse textiles and modern art. He commissioned illustrious British designers to create work for the company, such as Barbara Hepworth, Terence Conran and Paul Nash.

90 years later, Edinburgh Weavers are still using artists instead of fabric designers, encouraging  them to develop pieces that are uninhibited by the technical constraints of textiles manufacturing.

They  then use their years of experience and craftsmanship to turn these designs into magnificent printed or woven material. The results are truly unique fabrics - richer and more intricate, making inspiring backdrops for contemporary living.
