The Hoxa Tapestry Gallery is home to Orkney artist Leila Thomson's unique, large, hand woven tapestries which are inspired by the rhythm of life and landscape of Orkney. The gallery opened to the public in June 1996 and receives visitors from all over the world. Leila stopped taking on commissions in 2010 in order to complete her waiting list. She has tapestries in private collections worldwide.
Leila has been joined by daughter Jo, a drawing and painting graduate, to create a diverse and exciting family business. As well as designing rugs with Leila, Jo has her own studio and exhibition space within the gallery. In addition to the tapestries and handcrafted rugs, there is a wide range of products available here online: tapestry art prints, both mounted and un-mounted, greeting cards and postcards.
