Choose from a range of shapes such as stags, chickens, squirrels and more…
Some textile art pictures are made up already. This means the hand woven textile has been fixed to the shape and backed with plain card. Some shapes are beveled (the shape is cut on a slant to create a more aesthetic shape). All empty cut out shapes are beveled. Please not these are all sale items. I will not be making more textile art like this.
The Textile Pictures size range from around A5 to A4. Most of the larger sizes fit a 10″ x 12″ frame with a smaller mount (8 x 10)
Blank (empty) Beveled Textile Art Shapes
Choose a blank (empty) cut out shape and create your own art. You can buy a pack of fabric here. The packs should give you enough fabric to make at least 3 or 4 pictures.
Hand woven in Scotland
To choose a hand woven textile is to accept a slower pace. The Feather & Hay floor loom is powered by hand and foot not electricity, continuing a long history of hand weaving in Scotland. I believe in well made, hand crafted textiles that go beyond utility. Feather & Hay creates textiles whose aesthetics, ethics and tactile qualities entwine with the wild stories of the Scottish Highlands to become heirlooms of the future.
I use traditional craft skills and the finest natural materials to make one off textiles that respect the earth and look beautiful. Feather & Hay chooses high quality, renewable and sustainable fibres. This ensures a long lasting textile that does not deplete the planet’s resources. Feather & Hay dyes, hand weaves, hem stitches, washes and finishes each textile within North East Scotland. The designs also feature hand spun yarns, inlayed into the pieces as they’re woven. These art yarns often feature local fibres such as Shetland wool from Shetland or Alpaca from a few miles of the studio.
The designs reflect wild places. Often telling the story of the smaller details only noticed by those that immerse themselves in nature and respect its wild and natural balance. Each textile has unique, intuitively added embellishments such as small, hand entwined fibre inlays.
The shawls and scarves are woven to feel comfortable against the skin. I have combined the very best fibres to ensure each piece is soft, warm and smooth.
Feather & Hay doesn’t just make textiles. Each hand woven piece starts with a story rooted in the natural world. Inspiration springs from the landscape, its history, rhythms and cycles.
