Exhibition: NewVo – Jaymini Bedia

SilkShotFabricJaymini Bedia’s NewVo exhibition debuted at the Oxo Wharf, Southbank London in January this year and has since toured successfully at numerous venues. The exhibition comprises of unique hand-woven textiles and luxury printed accessories.

NewVo at The Digby Gallery will present The Gainsborough Collection and NewVo silk scarves alongside some exciting new work, including The Skyline Series of framed compositions and woven Womenswear fashion pieces.

Jaymini Bedia is a textile designer based in Colchester. Her passion for vibrant colours, textures and beautiful hand-woven cloth inspired her to set up her own company, which takes a fresh perspective on the ancient craft of hand-weaving. Her work fuses contemporary woven structures, traditional hand-painting techniques and sophisticated colour palettes, resulting in an inimitable style and a stunning range of hand-woven fabrics for fashion and interiors.

The Gainsborough Collection is inspired by the machinery of a functioning silk weaving mill – one of the few now remaining in Britain. The collection interprets the nature of the mill in a novel way; the repetitive machinery, winders spinning, jacquard looms moving…and simultaneously captures the delicate, beautiful silk fabrics that these industrial machines create.

SateenFabricThe NewVo silk scarf collection includes a range of eclectic printed designs, all about capturing the beauty and tactile nature of a hand-woven fabric and transforming it into a unique accessory. The collection also offers designs from Jaymini’s hand-drawn explorations of colour within nature.

The Skyline Series is about capturing the hustle, bustle and buzz of London through vibrant colours, shimmering silk yarns and three-dimensional pleats. Framing the woven compositions allows them to be enjoyed as works of art.
Jaymini graduated in Woven Textiles (BA Hons) from Loughborough University in 2012 and has exhibited widely in 2013. She received a scholarship from the Worshipful Company of Weavers in 2011, and was highly commended in the Clothworker’s Foundation Award by the Bradford Textile Society in 2010.
Working with a drive to bring the textiles industry back to Britain, reusing old skills and techniques is central to Jaymini’s working ethos. The entire process
from design to manufacture is carried out exclusively in Great Britain.
