ARRA TextilesTextile Designer and Weaver
Each piece is handmade, from initial design sketches through to hand finished piece, in a small garden studio in Scotland using luxurious natural yarns all sourced in Britain.
Arra Textiles take pride in being a zero waste, micro-manufacturing brand creating bespoke products synonymous with our slow fashion ethos; sustainable textiles for lasting design.
Powerful Orcadian design influences of light, sea and sand are woven together like an orchestral score, where hues, weave structures and yarns combine to create a striking range of fabrics. The Tide Collection consists of three designs hand-woven on a custom built, computer driven, wooden weaving loom from California USA. Inspiration is drawn from the seascapes of Orkney’s West Mainland and the birthplace of Arra MacDonald, hand spinner, weaver and great grandmother of Arra Textiles founder Lucy MacDonald.
