Catarina Riccabona - Weaver

Catarina studied Textile Design at Central Saint Martins, London, then specialised in hand-weaving. She loves working with her hands and enjoys the flexibility and the last-minute changes that are possible when weaving by hand.

Catarina makes one-off pieces for interiors, mainly throws and wall hangings, using selected natural yarns. Each piece is highly individual. This distinct identity is created by an intuitive way of working, allowing the design to form spontaneously while weaving at the loom. Each piece is also characterised by the slight irregularities typical of making by hand, like a natural selvedge.
