Ekta Kaul is a London based textile design studio established by award winning designer Ekta Kaul in 2008. We create luxurious textiles that celebrate a contemporary, pared down aesthetic and focus on simplicity, craftsmanship & timeless style. Our textiles are imbued with character, they speak of exceptional hand craftsmanship, careful attention to detail and a sensitive use of materials & colours.

Soft cashmeres, sumptuous silks & fine wools are embroidered, hand-dyed and printed in simple graphic compositions using time-honoured methods. We create bespoke quilts based on city maps & small editions of accessories in bold colours.

Following her training in Fashion at India’s premier design school, the National Institute of Design (NID, Ahmedabad), Ekta won the Charles Wallace and British Council scholarships to pursue MA Textiles in the UK & developed a unique creative voice assimilating influences from both countries. Since setting up her studio practice in 2008, she has gained the following of a discerning audience – those who value considered design, integrity of materials & provenance. Her work is stocked at select stores & galleries in the UK including Contemporary Applied Arts, Designers Guild, Ruthin Craft Centre among others. She has received awards from the Crafts Council and the Arts Council, England & was nominated for the Arts Foundation Fellowship in 2010. She works from her studio at Cockpit Arts in Bloomsbury, Central London.

A fantastic workshop where you can choose your own section of London to embroider. It felt like less of a class and more of a friendly coffee morning - with stitching. I will definitely be back to another course with Etka.

I am finally finishing this map during lockdown!!! I enjoyed the class last year. The teacher was very friendly and it was in a unique warehouse in London. If you like sewing and maps then this is the course for you...

This class was a lovely, relaxing way to spend an afternoon learning a new skill. It was a small class of only two students so it felt like we had a lot of attention. Ekta was a great teacher, she was very knowledgeable about her subject and gave clear demonstrations of each of the stitches we learnt. I just wish the class had been longer so we could have spent more time on our maps! The venue was easy to get to in a good central London location.

I really enjoyed the "Make a Hand Embroidered Map of London" class with Ekta. She provided us with the map pattern and patiently taught us the basic embroidery stitches, as well as showing us some of her stunning pieces and discussing her process and inspiration for making them (and yummy cake and tea!). I really recommend this class if you're looking to start embroidery, or looking to make a unique and hand-made memento of London!

A lovely teacher, lovely environment. Would have loved to get a bit more done!! But at least now I have something to keep working on in front of the TV.
