Annie Morris Artisan is a family run business by a husband and wife team based in South Devon, UK. Annie is a contemporary textile artist and the creative force behind the unique gifts and homewares brand. Her husband has a long history in retail management and looks after the technological, sales and marketing side of the business.
Annie designs and creates unique embroidered luxury products, working only with natural fabrics, vintage linen, silk and cottons. She very carefully selects fabrics, textures and uses a sophisticated, restricted colour palette. Her unique combination of freehand machine embroidery, hand embroidery and applique techniques blur the lines of fine art and craft. There are fun and quirky details in her work which add a unique hand finished element to her products.
As a reaction against mass produced items and passionate about clever upcycling, sumptuous cushions and accessories are all individually handcrafted in her studio mainly from reclaimed fabrics. This, combined with a love of constructed textiles, initiated the process of making beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces from items destined to be wasted!
Annie gets an enormous amount of pleasure from experimenting with ideas and creatively developing her work into ethically produced beautiful items. We hope that you enjoy the finished pieces as much as she has enjoyed making them!
