Both is a collaborative and creative design partnership between Ruth Waller and Lee Hewett. The principle aim of Both is to design, develop and manufacture innovative and functional ’textile based’ products for the interior and fashion markets.
As a company they are concerned with the investigation of structure, complexity and texture within constructed textiles and the modern interior. Both aims to go beyond surface pattern to explore the three dimensional and structural potential of fabric, through the use of a range of innovative design and production processes.
Both currently produces a wide range of highly textural textile products including a range of constructed felt rugs and wall installations, cushions, bags and felt jewellery. They have currently developed a new range of manipulated ’corrugated’ fabrics, launched in early 2006, which are suitable for screening, flooring and upholstery.
All products by Both are hand made in the studio in Derbyshire to exacting standards and with high level of precision, workmanship and quality in their work.
Both aims to provide innovative textural textiles for use by interior designers and architects as well as supplying retail outlets, galleries and private clients.
