Meet the maker:

My name is Liucija Dervinyte and I am the textile artist, designer and maker behind the brand Liucija Textiles.

My passion for creativity, arts and design started in Lithuania and led me to the school of arts, later to study textile design in Edinburgh. After finishing the studies I continued my travels – moved to The Netherlands for an internship in Amsterdam. And then back to the United Kingdom, this time – Liverpool. This is where I started gathering all my creative ideas together, buying materials, tools and making products. Very slowly I began the journey towards my dream career. After one year in Liverpool, together with my husband, we moved to Mexico. Two years later we decided to go back to Europe and explore the creative opportunities on this side of the world.

Here I am developing my brand, exploring possibilities in textiles and making handmade fashion and home decor accessories, as well as stationery products and one of a kind art pieces. My favourite techniques are watercolour and ink drawing, Shibori dyeing and hand embroidery. Combining these techniques lets me create intricately patterned details in the handcrafted pieces.

The main influences in my creative work are travelling and exploring new places, nature and man-made structures, patterns, textures and colours that surround us. I find the details in everything and that is what makes me seek for more.

My creations feature dreamlike pastel tonal variations, fractured patterns and subtle textures. I enjoy a natural feel of things, therefore like to use natural materials, especially linen for my textiles products, and recycled papers for the notebooks. I also experiment with natural dyes and seek finding new more sustainable ways for production processes.
