Margo Selby - Weaver & Woven Textile Designer

''Margo Selby is an award-winning, passionate, woven textile designer who started her career hand weaving on a loom in her bedroom and whose products are now stocked in galleries and shops all over the world.

Margo develops all of her fabrics on a handloom in a workshop beneath her shop. She would love to spend her life working solely on her traditional handloom but is regretfully aware that this is not a viable sustainable option nowadays. Margo has diversified her business to incorporate a more commercial and affordable brand, which she develops on her hand loom then sends to English mills to be woven to her specifications.''
