Hopipola Handwovens is the studio of handweaver and textile designer Kirsty Odds, based in Aberlady on the East Lothian coast. She creates fresh, contemporary pieces, predominantly for use in interiors, on traditional looms. She loves to use the rigidness of lines and blocks, with architectural inspiration, to create her designs, mixing in lightness and fun to create fresh contemporary pieces. The seasons and how they make her feel are often reflected in her work, whether influencing colours, textures, or yarns. She enjoys having fun with colour and the new beginning associated with the seasons encourage her to ‘experiment’, developing her unique designs.
