Anna Pritchard Textile Artist scarves and blanket

Anna Pritchard Textile Designer

I am a textile designer focusing on and specializing in weaving and contemporary Welsh cloth for blankets, throws and interior design. I also design and produce unique scarves. My studio overlooks the foothills of Eryri (Snowdonia) which is where my inspiration derives from. I live on a small holding with my husband and young children. I am deeply connected to the land being brought up on a dairy farm and being one of the oldest farming family still living in Dyffryn Ogwen. My fabrics are hugely influenced by this. My passion for colour, patterns and textures are evidenced in my cloths. The idea of continuing the ancient traditions of the Welsh woollen mills, weaving and knitting is important to me.

In my studio I draw and create flowing large scale paintings translating them into luxurious designs for my blankets, throws and scarves. My scarves are unique and are thoughtfully considered from fine silk threads, colour and texture with the ambition of creating a (WOW) factor that complements the clothes and the wearer. My fabrics for the home are intended to make a bold statement with their strong pattern quality and attention to colours which have been inspired by the dramatic and ever changing Welsh landscape.
