Margo Selby

Margo Selby is an internationally renowned textile artist and designer. Her design philosophy is focused on pushing the boundaries of weaving to create contemporary stylish fabrics for a range of textile applications.

Margo trained in textile design at Chelsea College of Art and Design and then followed this with a postgraduate degree at The Royal College of Art. On graduating Margo initially worked as a woven textile designer for industrial mills. It was during this time she united her innovative hand-woven constructions with industrial machinery to create the unique 3-dimensional fabrics that were to become her trademark.

“I draw influence from the visual world around me; architectural forms, graphic design, pattern, scale and colour grouping. Colour is a driving force behind my work. I play with the juxtaposition of simple forms, manipulating the use of both complementary and contrasting colour palettes, applying a combination of colour theory and instinct.”
