Helen Milen the weaver behind Studio Milena specialises in contemporary handwoven textiles, combining modern design with traditional weaving techniques. Helen's collections evolve slowly to offer luxurious scarves, limited-edition interior textiles, and intricately handwoven art panels. Each carefully crafted piece is brought to life with unexpected colour combinations, beautiful textures, and experimental weave structures. Considered design and sustainable ethics are pivotal to the essence of Helen's creative practice. Weaving with only natural fibres including wool, organic cotton, linen and locally sourced yarns. You will also find printed silk fabric left-over from the fashion industry entwined into Helen's woven art panels. Captivated by life in North Yorkshire, Helen takes inspiration in the architecture she sees: from dilapidated farm buildings to elegant Georgian townhouses. Helen combines this with her fascination for the changing seasons. These influences are woven into her textiles with an intuitive use of colour and textures. Each Studio Milena collection is designed, handwoven and hand-finished by Helen in her studio situated on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors.
