This month we’ll be hearing from Guild member Ruth Hepburn, who recently spent 6 weeks in Ethiopia working with traditional weavers. After winning a design competition, she was given the opportunity to design a capsule collection of fashion accessories for a German fashion brand in partnership with Sabahar, a successful producer of traditional handwoven textiles in Addis Ababa. She will give us an insight into the design process, the delights and challenges of cross-cultural design, and share some of the stunning traditional weaving techniques that are intrinsic to Ethiopian culture.
