 My partner and I are DESPERATE to go to Mexico and then road trip down through South America (next year, fingers crossed). I can only imagine I'll pass out once I set my sights on the fabrics, colours and textures of this incredible part of the world.

I took my partner to Venice for her birthday this year as she has always wanted to go...

Lou Budd. 25. London Town. 

Having been out of the design and making game for far too many years, I have decided to get my butt into gear and expand on my passion for all things woven: the inventive, bright and beautiful.
