Hand-woven in London's Iconic OXO Tower

From my studio on the banks of the Thames, I weave scarves, shawls, throws, bed covers, curtains and fabric by the metre. I work to commission for customers around the world, creating special textiles for corporate clients, boutique hotels and passionate individuals who appreciate fine quality and attention to detail.

Hand-woven by the River Thames

My name is Doreen Gittens and I am Archipelago Textiles. I was one of the original tenants of London's OXO Tower over 25 years ago, and have been hand-weaving custom fabrics here ever since.

I specialise in hand-woven textiles and use only the finest natural fibres. Silk, linen, wool and cotton are transformed into timeless fashion accessories and interior soft furnishings. During my time weaving I have won several awards, and my work has also been featured in the Tate Shop.
