Contemporary

Humphries Weaving has an established reputation for providing unique textiles to the high end decorator market both in the UK and worldwide.

We discreetly collaborate with luxury brands and studios to provide ongoing bespoke design developments, dedicated service and reliable production to facilitate unique ‘Made in Britain’ fabric collections.

 

We take time to understand a brands aesthetic and convert their signature design inspiration into woven cloth; whether organic and traditional, or geometric and sharp. We pride ourselves on taking the time to create and combine complex layers of the design process. This can include hand drawing and manipulation of artwork and weave structure, which helps us to achieve the less mechanical finish for which we are renowned.

We weave on a selection of stock warps which work as an adaptable base for our wide range of noble fibre weft yarns including cotton, viscose flax, linen, wool and silk. The availability of these warps and weft yarns at our Sudbury Silk Mills site means that we are able to offer competitive lead times and can reliably service repeat business. By being respectful of the confidential nature of the business we have built trusting and long lasting relationships.

We are also commissioned by designers, architects and interior decorators for bespoke contemporary projects. Often they have been unable to find the perfect fabric off the hanger and come to Humphries Weaving for our customisable approach.

 

As everything we make is woven to order we are able to adapt to clients specific requirements; be it design, scale, colour, yarn type, weight, texture or finish. Clients draw inspiration from our large archive of previous work and ask us to present development ideas or come to us with a clear design direction and finalised artwork.

We thrive equally on generating ideas or bringing our clients vision to fruition and explore creativity through woven construction. Our sensitive approach avoids clunky computer generated repeats and auto-filled textures to provide authentic and sophisticated fabrics.
