This project enabled the group to build a website, design a logo and print labels, which all helped to promote the group and its members businesses. Woolly Boost also worked with Louise Cottey to design an exclusive range of textile designs available to members and to enable her to learn how to use the power looms at Coldharbour Mill.
Louise designs and hand weaves beautiful textiles for the home and exquisite scarves and shawls to flatter the wearer. She has been offering a hand woven design service for a number of years and has enjoyed a number of prestigious commissions. Using the yarn as a starting point, she carefully designs the fabric to show its best qualities, often by manipulating the structure of the cloth. Each textile is unique and beautiful, produced on a traditional counter-march hand loom.
Recently Louise has been working with the power looms at Coldharbour Mill to produce larger quantities of fabric, while maintaining the high standards of her hand woven cloth. This has offered new design opportunities and a new service to offer to fibre producers.
