Cecilia Child of By Cecil creates woven textiles that are low impact, sustainable and made to last. All products are made in Britain, designed in Cecilia's North London studio and produced using traditional weaving practices. Inspired by the landscapes of Shropshire, the rugged British coastline, and the modern architecture surrounding her home in London. Each collection is designed with colour and textures found in everyday life.
By Cecil was established in order to create modern textiles in a traditional way. Cecilia aims to provide an alternative to today’s mass produced and environmentally damaging textiles, and exist to demonstrate the best of British industry. She oversees every stage of the production process, from designing the collection on the hand loom in her studio through to developing the products with a micro mill in Bristol.
