Tessuti Printed Textiles Scotland

Carrying on with my research into textile screen print studios, today I am highlighting Tessuti Printed Textiles Scotland.  Founded by Fiona McIntosh in 1985 in Edinburgh, after studying at the Scottish College of Textiles, Tessuti offers beautiful fashion accessories with designs influenced by the 50’s and 60’s.

Fiona hand dyes and screen prints unique fashion accessories onto silk, knitted wool, lambswool and cashmere  producing vibrant colours and retaining the soft handle of the fabrics with the technique she uses.

Fiona regularly attends design led craft and gift fairs including The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, The New York International Gift Fair and   Pulse London where original products are show cased. You can find Fiona on Mondays in Concrete Wardrobe which she co-owns with James Donald – of the PickOne label.  Concrete Wardrobe is dedicated to selling and promoting quality Scottish based or trained designer makers & crafters whose work is both high quality and affordable. Tessuti Scotland also has a web site which shows Fionas’ designs and information and now you can  follow her on facebook.

Fiona also supports textile design students by offering them placements in their 3rd year of study and this year I’m one of a very lucky three who have a place with her – now cant wait for July.
