Here Come The British!

We are so excited to be able to show you the first collection from new UK based (YES - UK BASED!!) textiles design company, Dashwood Studio.

Dashwood's Creative Director, David Sweet certainly knows his stuff, having been Creative Director at P&B Fabrics over in the US but now he's showing us and the rest of the world that we can produce beautiful, contemporary fabric right here in the UK... and why not?  With designers such as Phyllida Coroneo and Wendy Kendall working with Dashwood, we are in for exciting times!

Dashwood's first collection is Enchanted Forest by surface designer Phyllida Coroneo.

Phyllida's colour palettes and bohemian florals are influenced by her love of interiors and fashion styling, photography, culture and the British Landscape.‘The Enchanted Forest’ Collection was inspired by childhood memories of the Somerset Countryside and the magical series of ‘The Faraway Tree’ books by Enid Blyton.   

Dashwood have future delights in the shape of Wendy Kendall's Petite Street collection, out in August.


Wendy won the Ideal Home Show Wallpaper of the Year Award with this design. Now Dashwood bring it to life in this vibrant fabric collection. Petite Street will be available at Fabric HQ next month.  We can't wait!
We look forward to what little lovelies Dashwood bring our way next.
