Zoe Acketts is a handweaver dedicated to creatin
g highly tactile fabrics and products which are both practical and beautiful. Her fabrics combine the traditional dyeing, weaving and printing skills with contemporary, sophisticated design and functionality. Zoe Acketts Textiles evolved from her love of colour and texture and the desire to have high quality, hand-crafted textile furnishings. The range includes flatwoven floor rugs and wall-hangings which are made to order, as well as one-off, pure lambswool blankets and a collection of 'mix & match' cushions and gifts.
Zoe has been weaving for over ten years having studied Textile Design at Winchester School of Art and then continuing her studies with an MA in Constructed Textiles at the Royal College of Art. She now works at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, helping to train up new designers and crafts people.
