Margo Selby

Margo Selby is a woven textile designer. She trained at Chelsea College of Art and Design and then followed this with a postgraduate degree at The Royal College of Art (RCA), graduating in 2001.

Recognised for her technical excellence Margo became one of the first fellows at The Ann Sutton Foundation, a research centre for woven textiles. It was during this time that Margo united her innovative hand-woven constructions with industrial machinery to create the unique three-dimensional fabrics that were to become the trademark of the Margo Selby Brand.

Margo's designs begin on a hand loom and are often inspired by the design process where her patterns are led by the development of the weave construction. Margo Selby launched her first collection in 2003 with the help of a development award from The Crafts Council. She is now recognised as a pioneer within contemporary textiles.
