Established in 1903, Gainsborough is one of the UK’s last remaining craft weaving houses. As custodians of one of the UK’s leading fabric archives, and with their own design studio, Gainsborough plays a unique role in preserving both Britain’s textile heritage and its future. With a reputation as the go-to name in historic restorations, they also produce bespoke fabrics for many contemporary names in fashion and interiors. Alongside their bespoke offering, they have curated several collections which demonstrate the virtuosity of Gainsborough’s designers and weavers.

A show-stopper of a design, the chrysanthemum is an adaptation of a French eighteenth century lampas found in the archive of samples originally collected by Reginald Warner.
