Combining my passions of anything textile and the environment I create sustainable textile items for interior spaces under my own name – AvrilE.
Colour and texture feature heavily in a range of cushions and decorative wall pieces with the look of the piece often dictated by the original source of the cloth. This could be anything from a vintage tablecloth or hand crocheted doily to an offcut of fabric or cloth gleaned from a favourite item of clothing. Tiny pieces are cut and mosaiced together then stitched in place to form bands or patches of colour that respond to the shape of the original piece.
By sourcing fabrics no longer fit for their original purpose and saving them from landfill I aim to tread lightly on our planet whilst finding joy in crafting something beautiful.
Current work is available to purchase via my website www.avrile.co.uk or get in touch if you would like to talk about something especially for you.
