Luxury ponchos

About this project

Original drawings, photographs and textural mark-making form the starting point for these luxury ponchos, some of which portray representational imagery. They are individually hand-woven on a digital jacquard loom using sustainably sourced yarns, which are mostly fine natural fibres; merino wool, cashmere, linen and bamboo for example. Each garment is meticulously hand-finished using traditional textile techniques. Commissions are welcome and Fiona is happy to discuss any ideas you might have.
