So happy to have our work feature on the London Craft Week website too.
Thrilled to be featured in Selvedge Magazine’s May/June issue! I’ve drooled over Selvedge’s beautiful pages since my students days at Design school, the very best in textiles. What a delight to be in it.
Thank you fab folks at Selvedge for such a lovely feature:
“For the first week of May, the luxury handmade textiles of Ekta Kaul will be exhibited at the Oxo Tower Gallery as part of London Craft Week. Having originally trained in fashion at the National Institute of Design, India, Kaul’s focus on textiles began when she won scholarships to travel to the UK, and here she pursued her successful career in textile design. Now an award-winning designer running a London-based studio, her textiles focus on simplicity and craftsmanship, designing scarves, pillows and blankets that feature bold colours and graphic illustrations telling stories with unified elegance. Kaul is hailed as a truly unique artisan with the ability to blend influences from both India and the UK. Only using luxurious materials such as cashmere, silk and wool, she embroiders, hand-dyes and prints her textiles using traditional craft methods that highly value the expert level of skill inherent to textile design. London Craft Week takes place from 3-7 May 2017 www.londoncraftweek.com”
Next month we will be exhibiting at a very exciting show ‘Marks and Tools‘ during the London Craft Week alongside some super talented designers from Design Nation. Design writer Barbara Chandler has worked with Design Nation to put this show together.
The exhibition is themed around the marks and tools of the maker and how these translate into different disciplines. Design-Nation’s makers produce a wide range of distinctive high quality contemporary objects, both useful and decorative, large and small, simple and ornate; all are distinguished by commitment to craft and deep understanding of excellent design.
We will be showcasing our embroidered London Map and a selection of scarves.
Venue Oxo Gallery, Southbank, London
Dates 4-7 May 2017| 11 am-6pm
Hoping to see many of you there!

The photographs of our show at Etsy Four Corners of Craft at Tent London London Design Festival in Sept 2015 are finally here. Gorgeously shot by Yeshen Venema, they make a stunning archive of the exhibition.
“Four Corners was the first maker development and exhibition project of this kind at Etsy. Over the course of almost a year, it brought together the many partner organisations and selected 45 makers (from 1000 applications) to represent the cream of the crop of UK contemporary craft at London Design Festival”, says Sarah Hewett, International Community Programmes Specialist.
It was such a privilege being a part of this fantastic show. Thank you everyone who came and supported us.
