Margo Selby’s works are collected and exhibited worldwide. She accepts commissions to make bespoke artworks for site-specific installations.

Each unique loom-woven artwork has thousands of individual strands of yarn – every one of those hand-threaded, counted and re-counted. Margo’s works are painterly, in regard to the optical mixing of pure colour – and sculptural, in the physicality of woven thread as a mode of construction. Formal aesthetics are paramount; colour, shape, orientation, rhythm.

Art Into Industry

Margo’s guiding principle for her practice is ‘Art Into Industry’; alongside her handweaving, she continues to oversee the work of the Margo Selby textile design studio with industry partners for the production of a wide range of textile applications.

Indigo Stories

Many of our textile designs are realised in indigo – an inky deep blue. Our constant return to this colour is inspired by Indian dyes, traditional Japanese workwear and 19th century American denim; indigo has been used in textiles worldwide for thousands of years.

Rugs

Margo Selby, artist/weaver, brings her unique colour and design sensibility to everything we do, and nowhere is this more showcased than in our rug offering. We think of a rug as being at the intersection of the studio’s practice – rugs are both form and function – an objet d’art and a comforting furnishing that can transform a space. A Margo Selby rug has a distinct style and is created-to-last in the highest quality sustainable materials by technically expert artisans.
