The Texture Factory is a design-led material and surface studio that produces bright and bold materials for the creatively conscious.
Using innovative materials and processes, their aim is to create contemporary surface designs with bold patterns, a subtle relief and select colour palette.
Each design produced is always a one-off as each material composition is arranged by hand by the maker.
Products currently available include necklaces and earrings, with a view to introduce clocks, tiles and decorative accessories in the near future.
They offer a client orientated service for interiors and one-off pieces.
Meet the Maker
This is Sophie. She has always loved making things and is pretty obsessed with surface design and experimenting with materials. Her love for making started when her great-grandma taught her how to crochet when she was seven years old and continued when her mum taught her how to sew and make clothes when she was a teenager.
Sophie completed the MA Designer Maker course at Camberwell College of Arts, the University of the Arts London in July of this year. During the course, she learned about woodwork, ceramics and mould making which led to her developing her first collection of contemporary jewellery.
Sophie grew up in Yorkshire and studied BA Contemporary Surface Design & Textiles at Bradford School of Arts and Media where she learned weaving, machine knitting, hand and machine embroidery, screen-printing and laser cutting.
