“The relevance of hand-woven design in modern textile manufacturing and production”

Juliet Bailey is one half of the creative partnership behind Dash and Miller and The Bristol Weaving Mill. Together with Franki Brewer, Juliet launched Dash and Miller in 2009 and then went on to start The Bristol Weaving Mill in 2015.

Dash and Miller is an internationally acclaimed woven textile design studio that specialises in the design and development of woven textiles for the fashion, interior and automotive industries. The Bristol Weaving Mill is a micro-weaving mill, product design and prototyping facility specialising in textiles for fashion and home interiors. Working in partnership with suppliers and manufacturers all across the UK, both companies regard hand-woven design as the core of their creative process. Juliet will outline how both businesses started, and will share an insight into the practices and methods of each company.
