Tissus d'Helene is a haven for textiles, trimmings and wallpapers produced in the British Isles, France, Belgium, Italy, India and America, created by designers whose belief is to maintain the highest standards in their craft. There are many prints, some traditional and others more modern, inspired by European, Ottoman, Persian, and Indian design. There are others such as John Stefanidis, Alan Campbell and China Seas whose timeless geometric designs from the 70s and earlier are still printed to order. There are beautiful linen weaves and velvets as well as Italian and English silks, appliqué and hand embroidery. Since many of these textiles are printed, woven or embroidered to order, they offer a bespoke service for many of the collections.
