Sioni Rhys Handweavers

Colour, pattern and texture are firm features of Sioni Rhys Handweavers' textiles.

Their traditional Carthenni (throws) are deeply rooted in the culture of Welsh textile techniques but always in the modern idiom. They adapt design aspects used by the old mills to produce beautiful Carthenni which have become heirlooms treasured by a new generation. Their range of throws inspired by the former Melin Gwenffrwd on the Llanofer Estate in Monmouthshire is an illustration of economy and design that is the hallmark of Welsh textiles.

Much influenced by the dramatic landscape colours of the hillside opposite their Black Mountain Studio they complement their interior pieces with a range of fashion accessories in luxury fibres; searching always for yarns to create fabric that is soft and a delight to the eye.
