This year we ran a competition to sponsor a final year fabric design student. Lucy Burgess of Manchester Metropolitan University was the winner of our £300 sponsorship, and has just sent us pictures from her final degree show.
Lucy chose to print onto our Belgian Linen and Natural Linen Union Fabrics. We loved printing her fabulous, striking designs, based on Victorian Botanical Drawings.
Lucy has also been selected to show at New Designers.
All the best from us Lucy for what we are sure will be a bright future in pattern design. We will be keeping an eye out for you!
Our new Natural Linen Union, which is a nice and weighty but still fluid 250gsm, has a lovely slightly silky, soft texture. Woven in the UK from 60% Linen and 40% cotton, it is a high quality linen union that will be perfect for cushions and curtains and other home accessories.
If you'd like us to send you free swatches, please sign in/create your account, save your delivery details, and follow the fabric swatches request email link.
And while I'm talking about fabrics, you might be pleased to hear that our 105cm width Silk Habotai is also back in stock today.
