Autumn Curtains

As the Autumnal winds increase their chills this week we have been inspired to get into a little nesting and curtains have been on the studio agenda.

We have had access to an incredibly light voile and a raw lithuanian linen for this little batch of drapes. It's been a delight to play with those textures, working with the lightness of botanical prints like the Flax-lily bellow and the weight of the Amsterdam on the linen.

We started making curtains years ago as features for architects, using the fabric to filter in the day and add an interesting light element to a room. It's been really nice to make these far more accessible now and put them into store even though we can still only do very limited batches.

The linen has this incredibly chocolate fragrance to it when you first roll it down the tables, its such a pleasure to print.

"At night, when the curtains are drawn and the fire flickers, my books attain a collective dignity."

E. M. Forster
