Wild Cocoon products are designed organically on the loom through a process of building colour, texture and proportion until a story has evolved on to the warp. I begin with an array of colour and a feeling I wish to evoke. Instinct plays a key role in the finished look and weight of a products. I use a Texture or pattern that is based on a traditional Aran Cable stitch translated into a woven medium, this allows me to create something familiar and comforting while also using new and exciting colour combinations to ensure a completely contemporary feel.
