Rhian is an enthusiastic textile designer based in the Royal Forest of Dean. All products are designed, hand woven, darned, washed and tentered by Rhian herself, using traditional techniques throughout. Contemporary designs and colour placements are influenced by Rhian’s interpretation of surrounding environments that she finds inspiring. High quality yarn is sourced from a Mill in Yorkshire, creating truly British Luxury handmade products.
After graduating with a BA Hons Degree in Textile design in 2014, Rhian undertook a year of internships with several established designer makers. This led to her becoming a weaving assistant for Sioni Rhys Handweavers, and weaving the cloth for the National Eisteddfod crown 2016 with them. This journey helped her to gather techniques, skills and experiences enabling Rhian to design and develop her own brand of high quality woven goods in April 2017.
Since starting her own product range in April 2017, Rhian has been made an associate member of the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen in April 2018 and a guest member of the Worcestershire Guild in July 2018.
