Young British interiors brand Scion has just launched an eclectic collection called Wabi Sabi. The collection celebrates the beauty of imperfection, encapsulating the spirit of age-old hand crafted techniques. The 13 fabrics and 10 non-woven wallpaper designs are inspired by traditional methods such as block-printing, shibori, batik and ikat. They are casual and uncontrived, in a mixture of abstract, geometric, organic and floral motifs and in colour palettes of midnight, indigo and ink; chalk, stone and hay.

The name Wabi Sabi originates from a Japanese philosophy, which embraces two separate concepts: ‘Wabi’ – humble and simple, and ‘Sabi’ – aged and weathered. Together they represent the most simple form of beauty, which celebrates the loveliness inherent in the less-than-perfect.
Wabi Sabi’s printed fabrics and wallcoverings are manufactured in the UK and are very affordable: printed fabrics start at £26 a metre and wallcoverings are £32 a roll.
