Studio

Since 2005 Anna Champeney combines British design with top quality workmanship, using top quality natural yarns such as merino, lambswool and Mongolian cashmere. We create contemporary geometric throws, cushions and scarves with bold and original design. Textiles are sampled by hand on wooden handlooms at the studio and either woven at one of Spain´s top, family-run textile mills or produced completely by hand on wooden handlooms as limited editions.

As Anna Champeney is situated in one of the most depopulated and mountainous areas of northern Spain its very existence reinforces the fabric of village life here. Wherever you are we hope you will enjoy Anna Champeney textiles.

Artisanal Processes

As many processes as possible are done in-house for our hand-woven collections – from creating and sampling to hand-weaving and finishing. As well as hand-sampling some limited edition designs use a palette of exclusive colours extracted using artisanal methods at the studio and specialising in the extraction of local, environmentally-friendly dyeplants. We hand-inspect every product for errors and pack every textile with care before it is sent out.

Using small-scale artisanal methods also means that we can personalize designs for you via our Made To Order service – an unusual and very individual gift idea. For in a world where identical scarves are industrially made in thousands our textiles really stand out.

Planet Friendly Quality

As weavers and designers we are inspired by the sheer luxury of the softest merino wool and cashmere, the coolness of linen, the springiness of local sheep´s wool. We also feel more comfortable knowing that our yarns are top quality, coming from natural, renewable sources. Each natural fibre has a character of its own and we hope to enhance this in our textile designs.

Our most precious hand-woven scarves and cushions are hand-dyed by us using natural dyes. These are a true labour of love, using many local dyeplants and cochineal sourced direct from Canary Island farmers. These dyes give us full traceability.

Like many colour experts we also believe that natural dyes produce unsurpassed and harmonious colour – from the vibrant raspberry, salmon and burgundy colours of cochineal to the subtle earth tones of oak bark, chamomile or walnut.

Planet-friendly quality also applies to the Louet looms which we use in the studio for sampling and hand-production, being made from sustainable certified sources of wood. The weaver´s feet still work the pedals and each row of yarn is carefully guided into its place in the fabric by the weaver´s skilled hands
