Welcome to “The Swatch Book”, where I bring together as much as I can about my experiences in the world of fashion and interior design!
With a background in fashion and a Masters from the Royal College of Art, I know first-hand the struggle that us designers face on a daily basis, and having founded my own textile company, Offset Warehouse, I know how hard it can be to set up and run a design business.
I’m a huge believer in sharing knowledge, so I started this blog to document some of the amazing discoveries I’ve made and people I’ve met on the way, and share with you as much of my knowledge as I can.
I set up Offset Warehouse in 2010 and, despite lots of hurdles along the way, I am proud to say that I achieved what I first set out to do. I’ve brought together the broadest range of beautiful hand-picked eco fabrics and haberdashery from across the globe, and sell them all under one roof to customers across the world. I’ve sourced high and low for fabrics that are ideal for all textile projects, and at great prices that are even cheaper than the high street!
With help from other amazing contributors, this blog proves that it is possible to be ethical without compromising on the quality, appearance and price of your final creation – and will hopefully give you that little extra insider knowledge you need to achieve your goals too.
Create beautiful things in a beautiful way and don’t stop!
Founder and Director of Offset Warehouse
