Maria Sigma Woven Textiles is an award-winning London based textile brand specialising in hand-weaving.
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.
Maria's 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 her work, in which the aspiration for textile longevity through simplicity and sensibility is essential.
