Inspired by the trade routes which connected the East to the West, the Silk Road collection captures the essence of the 16th century textiles with their rich colour palettes and intricate patterns which travelled through the continents.

The collection is a mixture of Jacobean tapestry jacquards, large scale medallion velvets, 100% sustainably sourced cotton prints and intricate trailing embroideries. It has been carefully developed onto a range of different base cloths allowing for easy co-ordination.
