Located in a smart Chelsea townhouse on Langton Street, the Fabric Collective comprises a tightly curated collection of beautifully printed fabrics and wallpapers from a group of highly talented artisan designers. All of the collections are in natural fabrics – 100% cotton or 100% linen. Several of the collections feature stripes including woven sketched stripes and reversible tickings in rich jewel colours, printed graphic lines in monochrome shades and simple lightweight cottons designed to be used as decorative linings. A collection of woven linen stripes completes the selection. The collections have been chosen for their own creative stories; an eclectic mix that weaves effortlessly together to create a cohesive mix. Designers develop their collections in their own time rather than routinely launching new collections each Spring and Autumn.
