Alice Timmis Studio offers unique woven fashion fabrics, embroideries, and assistance with all stages of textile research, development and production. Our mission is to create quality and statement textiles through a process of handiwork that doesn’t get lost in the stages of clothing creation.
“I worked with Alice Timmis at a specialised Italian factory to create custom weaving with personalised Matty Bovan lettering, graphics and symbols. A lot of time has been spent to develop these and the results are startling: lamé, jacquard and metallic tape filament weaving! It’s so inspiring to collaborate with such an accomplished artisan, and have such new and exclusive fabrications in the collection.” ---- Matty Bovan, Vogue.co.uk
Hand woven fabrics, mill woven jacquards, and Irish machine embroideries are specialist areas of the studio. We produce from our London based atelier and micro-mill, and on larger capacities with our partner mills. We offer consultation, and unique collaborative projects working with fashion, interior, trend research, yarn developers and fine artists. We work closely with all of our clients to understand their individual requirements, sometimes working to tight deadlines.
Hand Woven Bespoke Cloth
We have looms in our micro-mill of various widths, capable of small-scale sampling and 150cm full-width fabric production. We are a valuable resource for clients who want to commission bespoke hand-woven cloth.
Mill woven Jacquard fabrics
We work with the best quality mills in Italy and the UK to produce high quality jacquard cloth. Clients are invited to select articles from our existing collection and change the colour, yarn and pattern design of our fabrics. We also run a completely bespoke service, creating fabrics in response to client briefs.
In our atelier, we have three Irish embroidery machines reputable for producing artistic high-quality satin stitch. We work with clients to design and produce luxury embroidery, as well as more experimental embellishments incorporating innovative appliquè materials.
