Hollie Ward is a weaver interested in slow made and small batch production highlighting timeless design, well made products and longevity. For this, she focuses on using natural materials and dyes and weaves her fabric by hand on a small scale. Ward feels it is important to highlight British production and the availability of resources that are accessible. Ward uses these as inspiration for producing functional, practical, long lasting fabrics with a blend of contemporary and traditional values for timeless style.
