Weaving a Dream

Going back 20 odd years my weaving loom was bought in a burst of eager enthusiasm following a first class honours degree in Textile Design. After some initial efforts at freelancing - which included designing pieces included in London Fashion Week - my loom was assigned to the shadows as earning a living seemed well...unattainable.

Then I moved to France..
Now the weaving loom once assigned to the shadows sits centre stage in my my atelier which is found in our 16th century rambling property in need of much renovation! . I work in a region known for it`s rich artisanal heritage and have a rich provision of beautiful materials to work with.. leather hides from Paris design houses no longer required jumbled together with end of line, unsold shearlings from Italian, French and Spanish tanneries. Just waiting to be delved into.. well that was the beginning of the adventure! Huge reels of cotton braid, rolls of boiled wool from slipper factories, odds and ends from various French manufacturers, just lying waiting to have a moment's worth. It was just shouting out 'make something amazing!!'

I started to weave with what was available to me close at hand, and together with the beautful and very often unusual pieces of leather a story started to emerge.. I call it ..
Byloom and Hyde…

10 years has gone by since and I am now enjoying the continuous evolution of my lifestyle brand based on effortless transitional pieces that will be loved and lived in for years to come..

Thankyou for stopping by! Alexandra xx

Welcome to Byloom and Hyde - bespoke distinctive sustainable fashion slow-made by myself in my old French studio here in South West rural France.

Since my time at art school studying textiles I have travelled a long and windy road which took me places I never planned to be. My desire was always to have my own design studio - and here I am ..

I love it here!

Creating fashion is a fascinating pleasure.. I am only satisfied once I produce something I am happy to wear or carry myself!
