Cecilia Frittelli and Richard Lockwood have been involved with textiles for decades, married since 1984, full-time business partners as ‘Frittelli & Lockwood Handwoven Textiles’ since 1990. We work in our studio/gallery space called Textile Studio, located at the north end of the Arts District at 143 Grand Ave on the historic west side of Saratoga Springs, New York.
Our contemporary clothing and accessory collection is handwoven on vintage Macomber multi-harness looms. The American-spun yarns we weave include silk, merino, alpaca, and chenille, with a special emphasis on eco-friendly fibers from bamboo, hemp, and soy. We strive to be a zero-waste studio by upcycling our leftovers into pieced and patchworked clothing. After the weaving process is completed, our retro-inspired textiles are steam-finished, cut and sewn into custom-tailored garments with exceptional fit and comfort.
