Aidan Renata is a Melbourne based textile designer, specialising in hand crafted textiles. Focusing on textiles that are used in every day life, hand weaving and hand knitting techniques are implemented to create something precious yet familiar.
Completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Fashion), Aidan is considered self taught when it comes to hand crafted textiles. He applies his training and knowledge to create craft oriented pieces that speak to the relationship between material, history, and fashion. Punchy and lyrical, the textiles created explore historical patterns and speak to the inalienable sense of time that textiles and fashion possess.
