Business overview

Taxtiles is a merge of 2 words: textile & taxidermy. Textile Sculpture/Embroidery/Taxidermy/Skulls and Entomology

Taxtiles established in 2014, the studio is based in the South Cotswolds in Stroud, Gloucestershire. Also an associate member of the Stroud Valley Artspace, Guild of Taxidermists and Cotswold Craftsmen.

The techniques used in the textile taxidermy are from traditional taxidermy translated into fabric, using sustainable yarns, threads and fabric.

All sculptures are pose able and can interact with each other. Even the textile trophy heads are pose able with the ears. Every sculpture is bespoke and individual. They can vary in colour and personality which gives them character.

None of the textile taxidermy has any part of an animal or bird inside it. The textile taxidermy is also referred to as "vegan taxidermy".

As well as textile sculpture, Becky has been doing traditional taxidermy since 2014, trained by professional taxidermist David Keningale. Specialising in mammals and birds. Additionally Becky has also had training from specialist bird taxidermist Carl Church.

All taxidermy specimens and fur/feathers are ethically sourced and have been either road-kill, euthanised wild-life from the vets and RSPCA which couldn't be saved due to injuries and illness. No animals or bird was killed when making the pieces. They were already dead when acquired. Becky never kills any of her specimens for her taxidermy.

Becky also does free-hand embroidery and illustrates motifs inspired by British wild-life. They are created into canvassed wall-pieces or cushions.

Perfect result!

Becky worked on a juvenile bird that had flown into a window pane and the result was perfect. She sourced a custom built box, kept me updated on progress and delivered a fantastic end product. She is friendly, transparent about costs and, above all, a great taxidermist! Thank you. I have no hestiation in personally recommendng her.

I ordered a beautiful green budgie from Becky and I’m absolutely delighted with it. I’ve always wanted a piece of taxidermy and Becky didn’t disappoint! She kept me informed of progress throughout and packaged it up perfectly to make the long trip from Gloucestershire to my home in Newcastle. She’s so talented and very professional. I would certainly recommend her and I’m already thinking about my next piece from her. Wonderful! Bobby now has pride of place in my living room!

I wanted a pheasant to be taxidermied and the end product was outstanding. The customer service was very professional, quick response to my messages and kept me in the loop the whole time. The website was also easy to navigate and seeing pieces done before was very reassuring.

I would highly recommend to my friends and family.
