hand weaving studio & design consultancy

The Aviary Studio is a small hand weaving studio and design consultancy working with brands to develop woven concepts and colour stories for their collections.

We have recently launched two new endeavours; Aviary Denim, our sustainably produced hand woven selvedge denim which is made using mill waste yarn, and Lark & Bower, a collection of off-loom woven pieces for the home.

Rejecting the constant demand for newness and instead supporting slow-design and sustainable practice, The Aviary Studio strives to offer alternative ideas to the fast fashion mentality.

We're seasonless, but we have an on-going creative process in which extensive trend and materials research is gathered, interpreted and applied through the medium of hand weaving, in order to offer a collection of directional and relevant design ideas that are both inspiring and workable in equal measure.

In an age where mass production and copying has become standard practice, it is our duty to preserve the traditional craft of hand weaving, celebrate it's cultural importance and versatility, and teach others the importance of knowing where our clothes come from.

The Aviary Studio welcomes design development projects from clients wishing to develop sustainable fabric ideas, colour palette, and/or to produce small quantities of hand-woven cloth.

We also offer weaving workshops, loom hire, and denim talks.
