Discover Vanessa Arbuthott fabrics. The Cotswold countryside is the setting for my life and it hugely influences the look of my fabrics.
The developing fashion in interior design is towards simple patterns which reflect a basic and rustic way of living and I have been hugely fortunate that this mirrors my life and thus my designs.
My collections include Meadow, Earth, Cockerel, Wildflower, Seaside, Garden, Woodland and Sky. Here’s a short film about the inspiration behind my latest Artisan collection.
My colours and fabrics
Gentle colours are my signature and include buttercup, limestone, clay, damson, duck egg, stone, raspberry, mushroom, cornflower, straw and lettuce.
The fabrics are perfect for loose covers for chairs and sofas upholstery curtains and blinds bed heads valances cushions and tablecloths.
The collections compliment each other by sharing colours and include useful co-ordinates such as checks stripes spots and floral prints.
The fabrics are produced in the UK and are printed on Linen Union and 100% cotton. Some designs are available on oilcloth wallpaper and floor rugs.
We are moving towards using only organic cotton in order to protect the cotton pickers from harmful pesticides. And we are constantly trying to find greener’ ways to run our business.
We also run a range of creative workshops and classes along with my daughter, Flora.
