Maker's Details - Gravelle, Anna

Anna Gravelle designs stylish and innovative fabrics and products for interiors.

Category: Textiles
Anna established her Bristol studio in 2013. Working within craft and digital processes Anna offers a range of interior furnishing fabrics and accessories that combine printed pattern and tufting.  Tufting is a technique most will remember as the candlewick bedspread, updated here by combining exquisite wool fabrics and fine yarn.  Texture is at the heart of her design process with the aim of creating a beguiling and unexpected tactile experience within domestic interiors and public settings.
Originally a television producer for 16 years, Anna decided to serve a new apprenticeship as a textile designer and graduated with an MA Design [Distinction] from Bath Spa University in 2013.  Anna lives and works from a "chocolate box' cottage on a National Trust estate on the outskirts of Bristol. While the rustic setting belies the modern aesthetic of her work she is inspired by the nature that surrounds her everyday life.
'I am captivated by the simplicity of tufting.  I enjoy transforming a piece of fabric, enhancing it by adding charming rows of delicate threads that add a layer of life and tactility to the cloth.'
