  Selected Makers


From her studio in Edinburgh Fiona McIntosh of Tessuti designs and prints a range of fashion accessories which are hand dyed then silk screen printed using the 'discharge' method of printing. She specialises in mainly printing wool mixes, lambswool silk and cashmere. Her current collection of prints  are inspired from imagery of the 1950's and 1960's. The use of colour is very important and discharge printing lends itself  to this whilst retaining the soft handle of the fabrics.


Fiona trained at the Scottish College of Textiles in the Scottish borders town of Galashiels, graduating in 1984. In 1985 she established Tessuti.

"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 29 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.
