Emily Mortimer-Barker


My work has been influenced by a Japanese theme, my inspiration came from Japanese gardens, as well as the bold colours and patterns in kimono fabrics. Most of my hand woven collection consists of silks and viscose yarns to reflect the richness of the fabrics that are created in Japan. My colour palette is very bright and vivid as many of the designs they produce are. I have also experimented with pleating some of my samples to give them more texture.
