Love faded floral fabric

January 30, 2018

There’s something timeless about a beautifully faded floral fabric isn’t there? For me, they conjure images of relaxed country living – fresh air, jugs of fresh flowers on polished old wood and a sense of simple, natural beauty. I live in an old country cottage in Hampshire myself and having gone through my pared back Scandi phase, I’m now embracing a modern rustic vibe. Including florals. Faded florals, sparsely and simply used, but the perfect choice for my country cottage.

I’ve been gathering lots of swatches for my own home, and finding so many beautiful fabric designs that I thought I should share a few of my favourite faded floral fabric loves with you. All beautifully made in the British Isles.

Sarah Hardaker faded floral fabric

Having designed for some of the biggest names in interiors – including Osborne & Little, Nina Campbell, Habitat and Harlequin Sarah Hardaker launched her own range of fabrics in 2006. For vintage inspired faded floral fabric as well as textural plains, stripes, dots and more, Sarah’s collection is definitely worth checking out. Using small family owned manufacturing companies in the UK, Sarah weaves most of her linen in Scotland and prints her designs in England

Madder Cutch & Co

I love how Nicola, founder of Madder Cutch & Co prints her own fabrics using only sustainably sourced plant dyes and pigments. Her original designs are hand screen-printed on 100% linen that is woven in Scotland. Designs include Achillea, Achillea Foliage, Blossom Stripe and K Stripe. They are utterly beautiful and perfect for adding an individual, faded floral touch to your home. Buy the fabrics from exclusive artisanal London fabric shop Tissus d’Helene

Nicola also upholsters one-off vintage and antique furniture. Love this 1930s oak desk chair that she has covered in Achillea ground linen in Burghley Blue.

Vanessa Arbuthnott

Cotswolds-based Vanessa Arbuthnott started her business on her kitchen table 18 years ago. For the first few months she worked after her four children were tucked up in bed and before they came down in the morning, cutting all the samples with her pinking sheers and rolling out the first orders on a table tennis table!

After some very favourable coverage in Country Living magazine and the Saturday Telegraph followed by a Country Living Fair, business took off and Vanessa has never looked back.

Whenever I’m looking to source fabric, I always browse Vanessa’s collections because I love her gentle approach to colour. I also love that she only buys certified organic cotton which is combined with eco-friendly flax to create her unique soft and luxurious linen union. Here are a few of my favourites of her faded floral fabric designs.

Damson & Slate

I love the welsh-made collection of textiles, fabrics and home accessories top interiors stylist Hilary Lowe has created for her own label Damson & Slate. The designs came together after her move to rural Pembrokeshire 9 years ago and include her own exclusive fabrics.

As well as contemporary takes on traditional welsh motifs, Hilary’s collection includes some beautiful faded floral fabric designs.

Wild Garden is inspired by a floral watercolour Hilary found whilst sorting through her grandmother’s art portfolio. Printed onto linen in Wales, this design is available as fabric as well as made up into cushions and lampshades.
