Hand painted textiles:
wall hangings, curtains, cushions and other soft furnishings.
Fabrics for home furnishings are painted with washable, lightfast paints that leave the fabric with a soft handle. Designs are painted on linens, velvets and other fabrics as required.
Wall hangings are painted using traditional size and natural pigments on linen. These range from stiffened cloths that are stretched and tacked floor to ceiling to softer cloths designed to hang from a pole like a tapestry.
Many of the painted designs are of Elizabethan origin and may be seen in the Elizabethan website
