Tessuti Scotland at Project Tokyo
Fiona McIntosh studied at the Scottish College of Textiles, Galashiels in the Scottish Borders, graduating in 1984. The following year she set up her printed textile studio Tessuti Scotland in Edinburgh.
From here, she hand dyes and hand silk screen prints a range of distinctive fabrics and fashion accessories using natural fabrics- silk, wool, lambswool and cashmere. She prints using the ‘discharge’ method which produces rich colours and retains the original soft handle of the fabrics.
Fiona is inspired by the colours and motifs prevalent in mid-century design.
She regularly exhibits at shows both nationally and internationally and also undertakes commissions.
