Woven Textile Designer specialising in vibrant contemporary hand woven prayer rugs and silk scarves for Muslim children
About 175S Textiles Ltd
Miriam’s design practice encapsulates everything she is passionate about; colour, architecture and geometry. Geometry is central to her weaving and loves the challenge of transferring drawings onto woven fabric.
Miriam’s collection encompasses chunky woollen prayer rugs with coordinating silk headscarves and Quran covers woven with silk and mohair. Muslim Children are introduced to praying at the age of seven. When her son turned seven, she wanted to present him with his own prayer rug but the prayer rugs available in the market were traditional and boring. That propelled her to design prayer rugs that were exciting and engaging for a young Muslim. Miriam’s aim was to create a fusion of function and style that can be cherished and utilized as an interior product in non-Muslim households as well.
