Arra Textiles is the brand created by Scottish weaver Lucy MacDonald. With inspiration drawn from ever changing seascapes and landscapes, each bespoke piece is handmade in the Arra Textiles Studio on Royal Deeside, from initial design images through to hand finished products.
Using traditional weaving techniques with a complex, contemporary twist, Lucy has created a design signature which blends yarn shades and weave structures to dramatic effect, essentially telling a story through cloth.
Lucy considers the environmental impact of each stage of design, production, marketing and aftercare, and she strives to use natural, traceable materials which reflect this ethos. With her zero-waste production policy and emphasis on heritage techniques, Lucy’s aim is for her work to become timeless heirlooms, with craftsmanship and sustainability at the heart of each design.
