Everything we sell has organic certification where possible, from fabrics to trims to the inks used to print our designs.
Founder Sian Cornish has a strong family tradition in the textile industry. Her Grandfather and GreatGrandfather were the proud owners of D. M Lancaster, a three floor fabric emporium in George Street, central Manchester in the 1920's and 1930's. With amazing fabrics sourced from all over the world, Sian treasures a small stack of fabrics including bolts of shanting silk kept from the shop by her paternal Aunt. Previously her grandfather was a cotton weaver, and Sian is proud to be continuing the family thread, albeit with her own ethical twist.
Sian lives in Cornwall with her talented carpenter husband Lee and two young daughters (who are inheriting their mothers passion for fabric).
