Eleanor Pritchard has always loved playing with colour and pattern. Her work often has a mid-century quality as she feels a strong affinity for the aesthetics and design philosophy of this era. Alongside this runs a deep interest in vernacular British textiles. Eleanor sees her work as a re-interpretation of these traditions and techniques for a contemporary audience. Designing takes place at her London studio, then much of her production is done on ‘dobcross’ shuttle looms at a small traditional mill in West Wales, by highly-skilled British craftsmen.
