CAP­I­TAL WEAVE

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style The Britlist -

While it might seem a clas­si­cally Bri­tish en­deav­our, weav­ing is a di­min­ish­ing craft. In fact, there hasn’t been a weav­ing in­dus­try in Lon­don since the in­ter­war years – un­til now. Daniel Har­ris of The Lon­don Cloth Com­pany scoured Hack­ney (the cap­i­tal’s tra­di­tional cloth-trad­ing district) for looms, res­cu­ing and re­build­ing them by hand. Now, they are be­ing used to pro­duce cush­ions and throws for his new col­lab­o­ra­tion with home­ware brand Lane. £76 for a cush­ion ( laneby­post.com).
