Handmade by Kirsty Gadd in the Cotswolds

Where Modernism meets the Cotswolds; beautiful contemporary homewares and gifts made with natural and luxurious materials. 

Kirsty Gadd Textiles was created after labouring a love of textiles for over two decades and fantastic career in product, interiors and fashion with some of the most inspirational fashion and homeware brands. At the age of 6 I was given my first sewing machine and a love was founded for all things textiles and fabric- I've never looked back gaining a degree in Textile Design in 2006 from Birmingham Institute of Art & Design, then followed a fabulously rewarding career at design institutions Habitat, Laura Ashley and Clarks. After turning 30 in 2014 I felt the time was right to make my own creative mark and follow a life long dream.

My inspiration comes from many sources; I'm a country girl, having grown up in rural Somerset I love all things countryside- picturesque landscapes, wildlife and all things natural, especially natural fabrics. My second love is for all things modernist; clean lines and shapes, and thoughtful functional design that inspires it's form. Modernist architecture has played a big part of my designs in the past. 

My lovely sunlit Shop and Studio is a Cotswold stone building on the outskirts of Cirencester, the capital of the picturesque Cotswolds. Where each of my pieces is lovingly designed, printed, dyed and crafted. I hope you enjoy my products as much as I have loved creating them!
