Donna Wilson has established herself as one of the most exciting young British textile designers with an impressive portfolio of awards, commissions and solo exhibitions. She set up her company in 2003 after making odd knitted creatures for her final show at the Royal College of Art. The creatures sold out and since then she has built her business designing and making a collection of curious cushions, luxurious lambswool blankets and a variety of products for you and your home.
Donna Wilson's work takes inspiration from her childhood growing up in the Scottish countryside and the everyday oddities and deformities of life. Her work is characterised by its playful nature, tactile aesthetic and multicoloured palette. In her London studio, her hardworking team knit, sew, pack and send out products to individuals and design shops around the world. Passionate about creating objects that people can connect with, the studio is committed to making things that its customers will treasure. All of Donna's pieces are made by hand in the UK.
Donna Wilson also has a longstanding relationship with SCP, one of the UK's most innovative and internationally respected manufacturers and suppliers of contemporary design. In 2008, SCP launched her Hue sofa at Milan, shortly followed by the Hue armchair and the Wilma and Molly stools. During 2009 and 2010, Donna continued to expand her furniture range for SCP with the launch of the Mabel sofa, Lola armchair, and the Frank, Henry and Ernest pouffes. 2009 also saw SCP and Donna Wilson's first successful joint venture; a collection of traditionally woven throws, cushions, picnic blankets and bags entitled The Nos Da Collection. The collaboration continues, most recently with a collection of carpets and the launch of a new range of Welsh woven textiles entitled Bora Da.
