ANNA GRAVELLE 

Anna Gravelle designs luxurious contemporary fabrics for interiors using printed pattern and the forgotten technique of tufting.

Tufting is a technique most will remember as the candlewick bedspread, revived here with radically different yarn and woollen cloth and realised in cool, architectural greys and vivid colours.

Inspiration comes from observing reed beds and the grids and rhythmic lines reminiscent of harvested fields during the natural decay of the colder seasons. Exploration through photographing, drawing and stitching form the backbone of the abstract patterns developed.

Alongside her smart interiors range, Anna is excited by large-scale architectural textiles with the aim of creating thrilling and unexpected tactile experiences in public spaces. Creating warm, soft and enveloping spaces is what drives Anna’s design process.
