Lorelle Aboagye is a Textile Designer,
Maker and Visual Storyteller based in London, United Kingdom.
She holds a BA degree in Illustration and a MA degree in Textile Design. Lorelle’s contemporary hand-crafted wovens are influenced by the material culture, social history, and the indigenous crafts of Ghana. They are developed in an organic, spiritual-led manner with a focus on sustainability and experimentation. Natural fibers such as silk and cotton are a staple feature within her work and reflect significant Anglo-Ashanti trade relations and colonial history.
