The Silk Gallery Collection was developed in 1989 by Kathryn Thompson who designs and sources her own fabrics and ensures that all manufacture is undertaken in the U.K. Timeless classical themes have been the inspiration for many of the designs. The core fabric in many of the collections is silk but the company has developed yarn combinations (silk with linen, wool, cotton and/or viscose) that enhance both the durability and the natural characteristics of silk. A major part of the work undertaken is on bespoke commissions. There is also a complementary range of trimmings. The Silk Gallery Collection can be viewed by appointment. Enquiries and cutting requests should be sent to email@example.com and many of the designs may be viewed online at www.thesilkgallery.com.

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.
