Jessica Light will be giving a passementerie demonstration at the Clothworkers Hall with The Experimental Weave Lab, as part of London Craft Week on 13th May 22. Come and see how Jessica creates her contemopary and design-led tassels and tiebacks using centuries old techniques.

As lockdown starts to ease and the world opens up little by little, Jessica Light would like to say a huge thank you to all our clients, customers, press, and friends who have championed and supported us during the past twelve months. You have helped keep this small business going through some tough times.

Moving forward the workshop is now functioning pretty much on a full-time basis, but due to limited access during lockdown and a very heavy workload our lead-times still remain longer than usual.

The state of play at the moment is any orders [with the exception of our online shop] that are received from the 12th April 2021 will not go into production until 24th May 2021. I know this sounds a life-time away, but as all our products are hand-made and hand-woven to order using labour intensive techniques, it is not possible and there aren't enough hours in the day to facilitate new orders until then.

Thank you for your patience at this time. Normal service will be resumed as soon as humanly possible.

This is, I hope, the last update I'll have to post on Covid 19 here. The workshop will remain  open for any woven orders and any other items that can't be made off the premises. This will mean longer lead times during this lockdown of around three to four weeks. We will try as much as is possible to get your orders out asap but please have some patience if this is not the case.

Stay safe, stay well and stay positive.

A year in the making, I can now reveal the first two designs in the very exciting passementerie collection, Lucy Barlow X Jessica Light, a result of the collaboration between Lucy Barlow, star of the interior firmament, from Barlow and Barlow, and yours truly. 

Just in time for Christmas, and what gorgeous gifts they'd make, here are the tassels. 20cm in length and in two beautiful styles, an ivory cotton tassel with Swarovski pearls and a leopard dip-dyed cotton number with a hand-painted top and semi-precious Black Onyx beads, now both available from Jessica Light Shop.

Top, Pearl Tassel.
Bottom, Leopard Tassel.
