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 and delicate weaves. All are hand- block or screen-printed on cottons, linens and velvet 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.
Silks, velvets, sheers, linens, cottons; voile curtains. Custom coloured fabrics; upholstery fabrics; flame retardant voiles; flame-proof fabrics for contract applications. Cinema seating. Fabric walling and tented ceilings. Trade and retail.

Tissus d'Helene is a haven for textile and wallpaper designers from England, France, Italy, Belgium and America whose belief is to maintain the highest standards in their craft. There are many prints, some traditional and others more modern, inspired by French, Ottoman, Persian and Indian design. There are others, such as China Seas and Alan Campbell, whose timeless geometric designs from the 70s and later are still printed to order. There are beautiful linen weaves and velvets, as well as Venetian prints and Italian and English silks, appliqué and embroidery. Since many of these textiles are printed, woven or embroidered to order, a lot of custom work is undertaken.
