Tessuti Scotland: Silk accessories with zero waste principles
From her studio in Edinburgh, Scotland, textile designer Fiona McIntosh designs and makes a range of hand dyed and silk screened accessories. Using the ‘discharge’ method of printing gives Fiona more control of the colour whilst retaining the soft handle of the fabrics. She specialises in printing wool mixes, lambswool, silk and cashmere.
Pictured here are some of the range, which are made from off-cuts of silk from other scarves so there is zero waste. The ribbony scarves are made from left over silk from the collection of skinny scarves.
Fiona studied at the Scottish College of Textiles, Galashiels, graduating in 1984. In 1985 she established Tessuti Scotland.
