Llio James is a textile designer specialising in weave. One of her main interests is to develop the relationship between hand weaving and the woollen industry within Wales. She specialises in contemporary hand weaving and draws inspiration from the sea and mountains that surround her. Llio starts many projects by choosing a colour palette and making yarn windings. This allows her to see how the colours interact together and she can then play around with proportions. These yarn windings also give her ideas as to what design she could weave onto the loom.

Currently based in Aberystwyth, Llio is producing a range of hand woven and locally woven house-hold products.
