Catarina Riccabona

Catarina Riccabona is a loom weaver, working with natural materials such as linen, hemp and alpaca producing intricately woven throws, cushions and textile art. Since graduating from Textiles at Central Saint Martins, Catarina has gone on to develop her interest in sustainability, heavily influencing her creative approach. Drawing inspiration from tribal textiles, vintage grain bags and linen towels, each of Catarina Riccabona’s pieces are hand woven on a traditional loom from her studio in South East London.

THE PROCESS

Each of Catarina’s pieces are highly individual, characterised by the slight irregularities typical of handmade objects. Her approach is intuitive, with the design often forming spontaneously while sitting at the loom. Hand-weaving offers flexibility and allows the use of ‘complicated’ materials such as knotted cut-off yarns. Catarina makes full use of these freedoms througout the process, producing work of such quality and texture that can only be achieved by handweaving. For her, this is one of the most fascinating and rewarding motivations for making.

Maker's Quote

Hand-weaving is quite a structured activity. There are different processes required before you start to weave. This set up gives me structure, a slow and considered approach. At the weaving stage I tend to work quite spontaneously and am often inspired by the materials I work with. I love the tactile quality.
