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. The silk collections are complemented by a range of trimmings, including fringes, gimps and tiebacks, some of which include glamorous Swarovski crystals. The trimmings can also be custom-coloured to suit designers' specific themes. Collections are now located in Tissus d'Helene. The Silk Gallery Collection can now be seen at the Tissus d’Helene showroom at The Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour. Enquiries an cutting requests should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
