Overview

Nadia-Anne Ricketts is a British textile designer who founded BeatWoven, a multi-award-winning digital textiles label. It was back in 2008 that Nadia-Anne discovered an interesting arithmetic connection between the architecture of music and the architecture of woven cloth. A professional dancer and weaver, Nadia-Anne rapidly saw the exciting potential of fusing patterns found in the universal language of music, with the global patterned realm of textiles. To fabricate our lifestyles with exquisite designs translated from music would mean innovative design that expands on personal music experiences and connections. The exploration of how to capture the invisible patterns in an aesthetically beautiful way evolved with the development of its first software programme in 2009, leading to the worlds first Fabrics of Sound.
