The Design Archives is the brainchild of Sharon Crowson whose family business, Crowson Fabrics, established in 1978, became one of the world’s leading producers, designers and suppliers of home furnishings. Sharon has taken on the huge archive of designs curated by her father and has created a series of fabric collections, bringing to life some of the archive’s most beautiful designs. There are five distinctive patterned, and two plain collections, both of which offer a palette of colours from bold and vibrant oranges and yellows through to subtle pastels, in a range of quality linen, wool and cotton base cloths, all of which are produced in the UK. The latest new “Shala” collection represents the very best of this eclectic brand with three distinctive designs in complementing colourways.

A carefully curated collection of beautifully printed fabrics from a group of highly talented artisan designers, who work on their fabrics with huge artistic input and love. Each designer creates their own very individual designs: delightful florals, naïve etchings, Turkish and Indian inspired motifs, muted abstracts, delicate weaves and geometrics. All are hand-blocked, digital or screen-printed on natural fabrics. The collections have been chosen for their own creative stories; an eclectic mix that weaves together to create a cohesive mix. Designers develop their collections in their own time rather than routinely launching new collections each Spring and Autumn.
