About me

Isobel Cross Textiles: innovation and design graduate from Loughborough University. Specialising in multi media textiles has given me a broad range of knowledge of a wide variety of textile and surface techniques. Weave, laser cutting, ceramics, print and dying have been developed to create a varied range of material outcomes, exploring the interactions between material, colour and surface. Within my collections particular attention is taken to fine detailing and texture, where soft qualities are combined with shiny delicate surfaces. The multi media designs are visualised for the bespoke and high-end interior market. Studying for a year at Design School Kolding, Denmark gave me experience of group work, problem solving and sustainability and the opportunity to collaborate with companies Kvadrat and Vero Moda. Photography, styling, visualisation and communication of ideas are key components of my skills alongside my textile ability. All images © Isobel Cross 2017
