The Silk Gallery was established in 1989 by Kathryn Thompson who designs and sources her own fabrics and ensures that all manufacture is undertaken in the UK. Timeless classical themes have always been the inspiration for the designs. The core fabric used is silk, but the company has developed yarn combinations (silk with linen, cotton or polyester) that enhance both durability and the natural characteristics of silk. A major part of the work undertaken is on bespoke commissions including working closely with customers or their interior designers creating custom-coloured fabrics. There's also a complementary range of trimmings.
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 beautiful silks from Antico Seteficio, Gainsborough Silk Weavers and Tessitura di Rovezzano. Also prints, linen weaves, velvets, appliqué and embroidery. Since many of these textiles are printed, woven or embroidered to order, a lot of custom work is undertaken.
