THE SPITALFIELDS COLLECTION 2017

THE SPITALFIELDS COLLECTION 2017

Last year Lewis & Wood embarked on a licensing agreement with the V&A museum. On one of our first forays into the archive we came across the work of the Spitalfields silk designers. These were hand painted designs for the French Huguenot weavers who set up their mills on the outskirts of East London. We felt these magnificent diagrams deserved a new lease of life as fabric prints and Wide Width Wallpapers, and collaborating with the V&A and with complete access to the original archives, the result is a contemporary interpretation of 18th century designs.

This astonishing brocade fabric is certainly something the Huguenot weavers would have been mesmerised by. A semi Chinese brocade with symmetrical patterning it is a tribute to those French refugee craftsmen of 300 years ago - and looks simply dazzling with the Lewis & Wood velvets.
