Christabel Balfour

Peckham - South London

Hand woven rugs and wall-hangings

Christabel finds working at her 1976 Harris and 1992 Don Porrit looms deeply meditative and this translates into designs that are simple, minimal and stripped down to their essence. Her 2018 Collection, “One Shape After Another” continues her exploration of abstraction and colour - the designs are elegant, drawing on geometric forms and bold colours.

Christabel’s rugs are inspired by London’s modern architecture but she also seeks to evoke a sense of openness, space and tranquillity in her designs. She uses hard-wearing, colour fast rug wool to painstakingly craft rugs to last a lifetime.
