Chelsea Textiles specialises in beautiful bespoke, hand embroidered textiles. Founded in 1990 by our friend, Mona Perlhagen, Mona identified a need for perfect recreations of antique embroidered fabrics and cushions. We were so pleased to be able to create a Collection for @chelseatextiles, portraying characters and patterns that have a primitive, almost folkloric feel. For this month’s Meet The Maker we have interviewed @jennnysimpson, Mona’s daughter and Design Director at Chelsea Textiles. We think that Jenny is one of the top colourists in the country. Her talent lies within her subtle use of colour and texture. Jenny spoke to us about finding inspiration from 18th centuries embroideries all over the world, her favourite fabric design and advice when combining fabrics. Visit @kitkempdesignthread blog to read about their intricate design process and how they develop contemporary designs with antique textiles.
