Fantastic Four

Time for me to come over all flag waving as LL&O celebrates the work of four UK based designers. Well, three designers and one national institution, pattern design heaven!

Susie Cowie is a London based freelance embroidery designer & recent graduate of The Glasgow School of Art. I am in awe of her work, it transports me to a beautiful place, a fairy tale world of spun silver and tiny, tiny spider web stitches!

The Liberty print is enjoying a resurgence this summer, watch as the world blooms with florals. I particularly like the collections from APC & Cacharel.

Hand drawn & painted prints from Swash, the Botanica Psychedelia collection is inspired by natural history. Butterflies, bugs, squirrels and birds, very fine indeed.




Lisa Stickley runs a boutique and online store from her base in London. I am such a fan of her quintessentially English printed textiles and home wares.

Hooray for the UK!

    I have loved liberty tana lawn from a very young age.there was only one British owned fabric shop in town that carried it and whenever I was downtown I would go and look at the new patterns and stroke their silliness. This was even before I taught myself how to see. Bekki bought a piece from the cacharel collection when she was in Paris . It must be genetic:)
