Fiona McIntosh studied at the Scottish College of Testiles in Galashiels in the heart of the Scottish Borders, graduating in 1984. The following year she set up her printed textile studio Tessuti Scotland in Edinburgh.
From here she hand dyes and silk screen prints a range of distinctive fashion accessories using natural fabrics- silk, lambswool and cashmere. She prints using the 'discharge' method which produces rich colours and retains the original soft handle of the fabrics.
Fiona is inspired by the colours and motifs prevalent in mid-century design. She regularly exhibits at shows both nationally and internationally and undertakes commissions also.
