Maria Sigma | Woven Textiles
Maria Sigma | Woven Textiles is an award-winning textile brand specialising in 'zero waste' ethical hand-woven textiles for interiors based in London.
By using exceptional natural materials I create textiles and furniture pieces for projects large and small, commercial and residential, combining expertise in made to measure throws, cushions, rugs, furnishing fabrics and much more. Maria Sigma | Woven Textiles products collection celebrates a timeless high aesthetic via 'zero waste' design and production ethic, combining a contemporary approach and traditional weaving techniques and focusing on raw natural materials and texture. Individually designed, handcrafted and fully customisable.
Inspired by my Greek heritage and by the colour palette of the British landscape, in combination with a love for maths and craftsmanship I make vibrant, but minimal, contemporary textiles that creatively interpret long-established traditional craft techniques and styles. By emphasising the raw quality of the materials and texture and removing any superfluous elements, my work pays close attention to usability and aiming at producing high-quality luxurious interior products designed to become timeless heirlooms.
My approach to design is based on the idea of creating beautiful functional textiles and objects through 'zero waste' design and craftsmanship by re-interpreting traditional craft techniques in a lively and contemporary way. High-quality and sustainable natural fibres (British wool) are key to the philosophy of my work, in which the aspiration for textile longevity through simplicity and sensibility is essential. Weaving is my way of putting the everyday chaos in order and make something honest and beautiful out of it.
