About

Paper collage - Astrid at work
I am a textile designer/maker working from my Ayrshire studio in Scotland.  I produce a collection of home decorative accessories, all of which are designed, screen printed and sewn by me.  My aim is to create stylish, original, slightly quirky homewares which stand out from the mass produced products seen on every High Street.

 

I like to keep my designs simple and use a bold, primarily monochromatic colour palette, with some embellishment done at a later stage using techniques such as applique and machine/hand stitching. A great deal of work, care and attention goes into every single item, be it a small pin cushion or one of the larger wall pictures

This is a  short video of me at work - https://vimeo.com/71372081 - it demonstrates the process and steps in making a product ( in this case one of my table runners).

The online shop is easy to navigate and is divided into four categories:

  • HANDMADE HOMEWARES - home accessories for the living room, bedroom or indeed any room in the house!  Here you will find a selection of unique cushions, table runners as well as smaller unusual home decorative items.
  • WALL ART - original screen printed wall canvases,fabric pictures and paper digital prints.
  • SMALL GIFTS - original handmade gift ideas all under £ 25.00.
  • SALE -  grab yourself a bargain!
  •  

New products are frequently added so keep checking the site and please contact me if you are interested in a special one-off project.  Happy shopping!

I also have  a shop on the Society6 website.  These guys are based in the U.S and it's basically a "print on demand" service reproducing artists/designers work on all sorts of products.  You can purchase new work from me and apply it to art prints, tote bags, mugs, iPhone and iPad covers.  Drop by and have a look - just click here and it will take you straight to my shop.
