Tissus d'Helene is a haven for textile and wallpaper designers from England, France, Italy, Belgium and America, whose belief is to maintain the highest standards in their craft. There are crewels and embroidered fabrics from Brian Lawrence Crewels, Victoria Bain, Jed Johnson Home and others. Also prints, linen weaves, velvets, Italian and English silks, appliqué and embroidery. Since many of these textiles are printed, woven or embroidered to order, a lot of custom work is undertaken.
