We’ve had big smiles on our faces at RM this month, following the launch of our Milnsbrige collection of textile accessories earlier in the summer, we are very excited to announce a selection of our work is starting to make an appearance in some of our favourite northern retailers.
A selection of our Milnsbridge bags have gone on sale at the lovely Craft and Design Gallery in Leeds and already received had an amazing response for visitors which has been wonderful. We’re busy working on new pieces for the gallery and will be updating with new stock over the coming weeks. Leeds is a fantastic city which we’re very fond of and it’s where my path of studying Textiles began so its nice to have new links back to the city.
We’ve also been back in the mill weaving more lengths of bespoke Milnsbridge cloth using pre-consumer waste yarns. Its going to be a busy few weeks sewing, but were very excited about some of the new colour pallets we’ve used in the new weaves and cant wait to see them made up.
When not weaving we’ve been out and about in Yorkshire - here’s a little look at a new mill we’ve visited recently, based just outside Huddersfield, who work with recycled textiles sourced from across the UK. We’re busy working on some new ideas and hope to have some new updates later in the year. It’s very exciting and inspiring to visit local mills and something we hope to do more of going forward.
