Alison Yule is an award winning hand weaver, producing bespoke hand woven fabrics for interiors. Most of her work is to commission and individually designed and woven for each client, and includes wall panels, rugs, cushions, throws and window hangings. Her inspiration is taken from her natural surroundings, whether local walks or house plants, and subtle shapes found within the detail of scientific observations. All her fabrics are richly textured and sit comfortably in a contemporary setting.
Alison enjoys using simple, traditional weaves, but like to give them impact by incorporating areas of texture and unusual colour combinations. At present she is working with plain weave (the simplest weave construction), weaving with over twisted yarns to give areas of pile or using very textured yarns in areas of inlay over the plain weave, to produce wall panels that are purely decorative and very tactile.
