Inspired by Indian handicrafts and traditional textile techniques innovated in a contemporary way. Francesca's work celebrates textiles with technical value and quality materials by working with other makers to collaboratively learn textile skills and teach each other techniques. Each piece of work tells a story from the handcrafted fabric which has been fairly sourced from locations globally, honouring the makers whilst ensuring a conscious effort to incorporate ethical production into the textiles. Within Francesca's portfolio the pathway of dye has been explored through working with natural colours like indigo, madder and turmeric to showcase the sustainable methods used to showcase the functionality of nature, whilst also using synthetic dyes. Materials are printed, manipulated and embroidered to explore traditional and contemporary textile techniques. Ultimately, Francesca hopes to create luxurious textiles for interior settings which have provenance, and conscious value.
