Polly Leonard, Founder


After gaining a degree in Design from Glasgow School of Art and a Masters in Fine Art from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia I taught textiles for ten years before launching Selvedge in 2003. I wanted to publish a magazine as beautiful as the textiles represented within its pages. I have a hands on approach to every aspect of the magazine and brand.

Thirteen years on my obsession with textiles is stronger than ever having branched out from the print magazine to our own shop and events program. I love meeting and talking to makers, subscribers and customers about our shared passion. If you are visiting London do drop by the shop and meet my wonderful team. We would love to say hello.
