Hollie Bailey

Hollie Bailey is a dynamic hand weaver, producing beautifully crafted original pieces from her studio located in Leicestershire.

Her fabric designs are a brilliant mix of traditionally executed construction using regular weave structures, combined with a more contemporary play on yarn properties, resulting in a unique range of woven textiles.

She is already an accredited designer whose fabrics are recognizable by their award winning unique style.

This trademark style is recognisable by its movement and individuality. The creation of these pieces is achieved by expertly manipulating the shrinking nature of woollen yarns, alongside stable yarns, creating soft textures and undulating surface qualities, resulting in wonderfully unusual one off fabrics.

Hollie indulges her unique and distinct style with sumptuous fibre choices of soft lambswool and beautiful lustrous silks, creating a well-balanced contrast of tactile textures and opulent designs. This, combined with her innate sense of the use of colour makes Hollie's fabric desirable and divine.

Her collection already includes a range of luxurious scarves and has recently been expanded to include exquisitely constructed cushions. She is currently working on her new products, which are due to debut throughout the year.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 2 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
