Weaver Dalia James works on three looms in her east London studio. Inspired by the Bauhaus movement and a broad range of architecture, she uses geometric forms and creates colour palettes from her research.

One-of-a-kind wall hanging handwoven from biodegradable spun silk and bamboo yarn, reducing impact on the environment. Dalia uses a double cloth structure to form intricate geometric blocks in the weft, juxtaposed by the organic nature of the hand dip-dyed warp. Due to this, each piece is unique and will vary slightly from the one pictured.

This item is part of our New Makers programme. In its fourth year running, five makers demonstrating excellence in skill, originality and craftsmanship have been chosen by a TOAST panel.

Dalia James | New Makers

Dalia James is one of the five New Makers that TOAST will be supporting and nurturing throughout the year. She creates her striking weavings in her studio in east London using biodegradable fibres and a vibrant colour palette.

“I dip-dye the yarns by hand, so even though the structure of a weaving can be the same, no two will ever be identical,” explains weaver Dalia James. She creates unique pieces on three looms in her east London studio. Her space, which she moved into thanks to a grant from the Arts Council, is in a building with 25 other units, so there is a great sense of community.
