Lorelle Aboagye is a textile designer,
maker and visual storyteller based in London, United Kingdom.
She holds a Bachelors 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 indigenous textiles of Ghana. They are developed in an organic, spiritual led manner with a focus on sustainability. Natural fibres such as silk and cotton are a staple feature within her work and reflect significant Anglo-Ashanti trade relations and the colonial history of a nation.
