Our Fabrics

After studying Fashion Print at Central Saint Martins, Keighley went on to design for Liberty, creating many of their most successful prints. It was there her love for interiors blossomed. This collection of fabrics were inspired by English gardens; a tangle of colourful flowers and foliage, delicately hand painted in watercolour. Made in England, the original artwork has been printed onto a soft luxurious velvet.
