Fiona McIntosh studied at the Scottish College of Textiles in Galashiels, graduating in 1984. The following year she set up her printed textile studio Tessuti Scotland in Edinburgh. From here she hand dyes and hand silk screen prints a range of distinctive fabrics and fashion accessories using natural fabrics- silk, lambswool, wool 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.
