Felicity Irons, is one of the last of the English rush weavers who is keeping alive a craft that dates back to Anglo Saxon times.The British freshwater rushes she uses, scirpus lacustris schoeneplectus, are grown and harvested on the Great River Ouse in Bedfordshire, and Cambridgeshire – a practice that is entirely sustainable. The rushes are dried in the wind and sun – a totally natural practice that results in the varied rush colours which gradually change to a warm honey over time. Each mat is a work of the most superb craftsmanship using entirely sustainable materials.
