…from Eloïse Sentito: autodidact of the tweed tradition hailing from Dartmoor and handweaving all-wool garments in landscape abstractions on the simplest looms.
Chasing the spirit of the Celtic corners in knotted cowls, tasselled scarves, generous shawls, wholesome blankets and sturdy rugs: functional poetry that brings the outdoors in, and lasts a lifetime.
Plain weave shows the character of local and native breed wool for simple cloth; twill gives a shot effect in cushioned fabric with good drape; invisible hand-stitching and decorative knotting polish the finish.
Slow cloth made meticulously by hand, by me, in lowest-carbon ways for heirloom fabric and political statement: for sustainable craft livelihood, not for profit. Makership is an act of resistance.
