PLUSH! is the creative partnership of two textile designers, Christina Turner and Virginia
Harrison. They have both been designing and weaving fabric for more than 20 years, and
16 years ago decided to work together which resulted in PLUSH! Luxury Fabrics & Design
becoming the banner under which they both design and produce original fabric and art to
Christina is a member of the Design Institute of Australia and Virginia is a recipient of an
International specialised skills association award, having won a grant to attend a jacquard
weaving and CAD course in Florence, Italy. Prior to studying textile design and
handweaving they both worked in IT. Christina graduated from RMIT in 1994, and Virginia
studied at RMIT from 1986 to 1988. Their combined experience spans computer aided
design and the ancient art of handweaving.
Pat Jones studied fashion design and production at RMIT and then went on to study textile
design. She has always loved textiles and has a great collection of old and new fabrics.
Her studies and experience make her an ideal third person in our partnership.
Christina, Virginia and Pat all love the process of designing for woven cloth. Initial
inspiration can come from a variety of sources: colour, light, shade, shape and pattern; all
these can influence the final design.
The path to a finished work begins with colour and weave design, leading to choice of
yarn, predominantly fine wool and silk. At this stage some samples can be woven and
designs resolved on a computer. Final decisions are then made and short lengths of fabric
are handwoven on looms which operate on similar principles to those in operation
hundreds of years ago. The fabrics, which have a luxurious texture and drape are then
used to make the unique finished pieces.
Design is an adventure, with no end; all three of us have more ideas than time and that is
what continues to drive our creativity.
