An obsession with fabric and a love of travel led textile designer, Liz Dawes, to create Woven Stories - an online and retail space devoted to beautiful and unique handmade fabrics.
At Woven Stories, we like to get to the source. We cut out the middleman and buy our fabrics directly from the makers and artisan co-ops, ensuring that everyone involved in the creation of these products is fairly paid.
Crack of dawn flights, sweaty train trips and interminable car journeys are a daily occurrence in the search for the artisans who make our incredible products. To see these printers, weavers and dyers at work, and to be invited into their lives, is a joy and a privilege that makes all the travelling worthwhile.
We currently source most of our fabrics from India, a country with a rich textile heritage. Blockprints from Rajasthan and Gujarat, Ikats from Telangana, and Khadi from West Bengal are just a few of the delicious fabrics we stock, suitable for fashion and interior projects.
We hope you enjoy using our fabrics, and would love to see what you create. Please either send your photo to email@example.com or tag us #mywovenstory.
