An exhibition to see: IPEX

Anyone with an interest in textiles will love this exhibition, below is a little bit more information about the event:

Handmade Interiors (in association with Handmade in Britain) is very excited to announce the forthcoming exhibition – IPEK (which means silk in Turkish) as part of their initiative to promote and support Contemporary Designer-makers. Handmade Interiors will host the exhibition in their Cheshire Street store, showcasing ‘one off’ or limited edition pieces designed by British and Turkish textiles and fashion artists. The pieces will be available for purchase during the exhibition.  As the name suggests the designers will draw inspiration from eastern influences and the products on show will range from fashion accessories to soft furnishings and interiors products made in silk. The exhibition will run alongside our permanent product ranges of contemporary design art ceramics, exclusive home textiles and interior accessories.  The exhibition opens on 11th March with a private view from 6.00 – 9.00pm. The exhibition runs until 28th March (opening hours 11.00 – 6.00pm).
