Here’s what the press, our happy customers and gallerists say about us:

“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.”

Selvedge Magazine

“Ekta’s work is irresistible, her work in cashmere is of the finest quality, incredibly comforting and a work of art all in one – it’s the attention to detail that makes it really special.  The woollen scarves are playful and incredibly versatile, a real wardrobe classic.”

Christina Jansen, Director, Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh

“With over 30 years experience in the contemporary craft sector as Director of Bluecoat Display Centre, and regularly showing over 350 carefully selected designers of quality and originality, I have to confess that the stunning textiles by Ekta Kaul are definitely in my top ten. I’m lucky enough to possess one of her amazing wraps, and it cheers me up no end on cold winter days”

Dr Maureen Bampton, Director, Bluecoat Display Centre, Liverpool

“Beautiful elegant designs. My daughter will love her scarf!”

Sue Biyon, Newport.

“I just bought a gorgeous cashmere scarf of yours from the CAA gallery. It is half off-white and half dip dyed (I imagine) a north-sea green/grey blue. The tasseled ends are more of a royal blue and the weave has a very subtle diamond pattern. I bought it as a birthday gift and I’m very happy to give such lovely craftsmanship.”

Tom Raymont, London

“Amazing execution of simple ideas. Beautiful sophisticated outcomes!”

Heather Bambury, Bucks.

 

Testimonials from happy students of our courses

“If you want a day of pure escape, creativity and yummy food, make this the one! Ekta was so welcoming and I walked away feeling that I’d learned absolutely loads and loads! I love my map and can’t wait to have it framed.”
Claire Fletcher
“I so enjoyed the course –  it was really well structured and delivered in a way that was supportive, encouraged confidence and crucially – was hugely inspiring. I went home, my head buzzing with ideas and have already managed to carve out some time to do some hand stitching embellishment  (place names)  and dust off my sewing machine  – just to be check that I could do free embroidery – ( I can)!
You are a very talented artist and a great communicator. Thank you.
 Carol Larkin
“I have wanted to learn more about free machine embroidery for a while. When I saw the workshop advertised on Ekta’s website I decided that I should have a go! Ekta’s work is very creative and of a very high standard (I bought one of her scarves last year!) I had seen some of her quilts at Art in Action and thought I could learn a lot from her. I wasn’t disappointed! Ekta is a very encouraging, enabling and skilful teacher. She is very patient and has a real sense of fun. I enjoyed the workshop tremendously, learnt lots of new skills and came away having started a piece of work that I now have the confidence and skills to complete!”
Jenny Samuel

“I thoroughly enjoyed the course with Ekta, renewing my interest in sewing, yet doing something I had never done before ie machine embroidery. I decided to come to Ekta’s workshop because I so liked what she made for the Christmas Fair and I wanted to learn her techniques. I am close to retirement and am looking to spend time doing something creative, making items that are unique, attractive and useful and can be given as presents. I am so inspired I am now bidding on e-bay for a Bernina sewing machine!”
