Texture Tapestries is a contemporary tapestry weaving studio in Cornwall, specialising in handwoven rugs and custom wall-hangings.

I design and weave on upright analog looms at my weaving studio. Alongside my bespoke work, I create unique tapestries on commission for private clients.

I inherited a family passion for weaving and learned to weave in my early years. My childhood was spent dancing back and forth between Poland and the American Midwest, surrounded by strong weaving traditions in both landscapes. My love for this meditative art form was rekindled when I traded in city life for the sea.

My inspiration comes from natural landscapes, history and folklore. I am fascinated by the stories and meanings held by physical places, and the sea in all of its forms.

Sustainability and the preservation of cultural heritage are both close to my heart. I work with traditional weaving techniques and natural materials, sourcing wool locally in Cornwall where possible. I am developing a dyer’s garden and incorporating hand-dyed materials into my work.
