Maria Sigma | Woven Textiles is an award-winning London based Textile brand specialising in natural ‘zero waste’ ethical hand-woven textiles.
My approach is based on the idea of creating beautiful natural textiles through ‘zero waste’ design and craftsmanship by re-interpreting traditional craft techniques in a contemporary way. High-quality and sustainable natural fibers are key to my philosophy, in which the aspiration for textile longevity through simplicity and sensibility is essential.
I exclusively use natural undyed materials and consider the environmental impact at every stage of the design and making process. I strive to decrease to the minimum yarn waste and unnecessary cuts, the use of machinery, water and electricity. By adhering to a ‘zerowaste’ philosophy, I aspire to make hand-weaving an even more sustainable craft.
Inspired by my Greek heritage and the colour palette of the British landscape, in combination with love for maths and craftsmanship I make vibrant, but minimal, contemporary textiles. By emphasising the raw quality of the materials and removing any superfluous elements, I aim at producing honest textiles designed to become timeless heirlooms.
