Selina Rose

Bold & expressive patterned

Selina Rose is a textile designer and maker, whose process involves carving and manipulating felted wool to create textile surfaces that feature rhythmical, sculptural, tactile patterns.

Selina says, “For me craft is a form of communication and expression and the beauty of this is that it benefits both maker and client.”

Selina specialises in creating textile installations, unique fabric panels and rugs, that play with light and shade and invite touch. These signature compositions of pattern, colour and material result in unique statement interior surfaces and a range of interior products.

New work FORM is an intricately cut and patterned wool felt piece, suitable as a hanging or screen. The design emerged from an immersive and restorative design project in which she returned to her printmaker routes, to develop a series of printed patterns, inspired by the rugged coastlines of both her Cornish heritage and Suffolk where she is now based. The hand-made patterns were then translated by Selina into her distinctive intricately cut surfaces made from pure wool felt, a naturally circular material.

The result is a bold, expressive patterned sustainable fabric which evokes a sense of the textures and forms of the landscapes that surround the maker.
