Alan Oliver is a self-taught textile artist specialising in the production of handwoven rugs and wallhangings. He weaves all of his pieces on a Kentish floor loom in his South London studio, more often than not using yarns that he has hand-dyed himself in order to achieve the exact colour and shade required.
Many of Alan's rugs may be hung on the wall as an alternative to use underfoot, they are luxurious to the touch, whilst remaining hardwearing, and are of the highest quality.
