Member Spotlight: Wallace Sewell creative woven textile design studio
Wallace Sewell is a UK-based studio founded by Harriet Wallace-Jones and Emma Sewell, that intuitively fuses colour, structure and yarn into woven accessories for the fashion and home industries. Marrying art and design within each product, their collections have gained an international following over the years. In addition to the accessories, the studio also works on custom projects for the hospitality, transportation and retail markets, including upholstery for the London Underground and bespoke scarves for the Tate gallery shops.
Both women are inspired by art and paintings, and share a passion for exploring the theory of colour and woven textiles, resulting in a unique and successful design partnership. They have worked together for over twenty-five years and continue to design together with a strong creative spark that is ever evolving, always distinctive and consistently recognisable.
Wallace Sewell manufactures their signature collections in Britain, with a thoughtful and meticulous approach to production. New ideas are created on handlooms at their studios in London and Dorset, which are then woven
industrially at a UK textile mill.
Wallace Sewell believes they have a responsibility to produce products as sustainably as possible. Weaving with natural yarns and fibres, the whole process of warping, weaving, finishing and processing, all take place within a
200 mile radius of the mill. Sharing details of their supply chain and having transparency throughout production is very important to Wallace Sewell and something their clients respect and appreciate.
