Textile Designer Weaving

Bristol Weaving Mill was established in 2015 by Franki Brewer and Juliet Bailey, the owners of internationally renowned handwoven textile design studio, Dash and Miller. The Bristol Weaving Mill focuses on creating and producing original and innovative fabric for fashion and interiors using local, ethical and sustainably sourced materials in a radical new approach to woven fabric production.

The Mill also regularly collaborates with external partners – farmers and smallholders – to develop and produce beautiful and innovative design-lead products created from waste yarn and other materials often incorporating British alpaca and Shetland wool.

Franki and Juliet contribute to the field extensively: they lecture at the Campaign for Wool's 'Making it in Textiles' conference, and for MA course at the RCA. They are involved in the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust for craft scholars and apprentices, and received the Thomas Fattorini Award for Excellence in Craft in 2016.
