Margo Selby studio is a woven textile design company that produces exceptional quality textiles for interiors.
Margo’s expertise in weaving is central to all the product development. The design process begins with hand-woven textile concepts, which are then developed with specialist mills and artisan weavers to create unique textile products that include furnishing fabric, carpet, rugs and accessories.
“I am first and foremost a craftsperson and you can see the time spent designing on the loom in the final result. I work in an intensive and detailed way and I will often go through many versions of an idea before reaching the final design.”
Margo’s designs are inspired by her travels – “the saris of Varanasi, India; fluorescent colours from the Mexican fabrics of San Cristóbal de las Casas; and the structural qualities of contemporary Japanese weave.”
But her earliest influences were from closer to home.
“As a little girl I was inspired by my grandmother’s needlework and cross-stitch, and loved seeing her projects all over the house; I learned a lot from her.”
