Melin Tregwynt were asked if we would allow the use of our textiles to create the wonderful backgrounds, illustrated below. Those of you familiar with our work can see if you recognize the different designs…

As part of the design, we’re keen to use Welsh textures and fabrics doted here and there in the landscape to give the series a distinctive look. These would include some traditional Welsh blanket weaves as well as some of Melin Tregwynt’s other fabrics.
