With the rise of an army of home-grown craft, markets and makers we are a nation besotted with the idea of artisan. Whether it’s printed, drawn, cut or painted we’ve got a spring in our step from all our new arrivals.
Painterly florals are big everywhere right now – whether you’re sporting the latest patterned jacket or watching The Big Allotment Challenge on the BBC. It’s Spring, and home-crafted decoration is taking over faster than you can say Chrysanthemum.
Louise Body are crowning this trend with a fresh colour palette of designs such as Harry's Garden with it's delicate birds and branches that are all printed specially to order.
We’re overjoyed to be able to offer you our fast developing ‘Independent Designers’ portfolio, with new textile and print designers including Cloth & Clover’s twee linens, Emily Burningham’s arts & crafts feel & St Jude’s eclectic prints. Each with a unique sense of style & lovingly crafted locally, we applaud these ‘artisan’ brands.
Another exciting new addition is the iconic Emma Bridgewater range, which has been replicated on to both cloth & paper, exclusively for Sanderson. If like us you’re feeling like it’s time for sunshine, deck chairs and ice cream then this collection is for you. The influences of pottery and ceramics in The Dresser design shout artisan style, completing the look with ditsy small scale prints of flowers and figs.
If you’re looking for a more masculine approach, we have a stunning array of textures and imperfect markings worthy of any artist’s studio. The earthy tones of Scion’s Wabi Sabi design work well with accessories in copper and bronze tones. Or how about the humorous Fox and Hen design from quintessentially English brand Barneby Gates? Using traditional British print techniques has given the brand a wallpaper collection with unique results that embrace everything artisan.
For a more traditional approach, take a leaf straight out of the sketch book if you’re daring and adorn your home with the sweeping lines of the Sussex Downs with this rustic Sanderson design. We’ll be eating artisanal bread out in the fields in no time!
