La Porte Anglaise

In the last couple of years Kate has been developing her own line of hand-printed fabrics. These colourful prints began as block prints, carved by hand in her own kitchen, where she worked up sketches and planned repeats on an old butcher’s block. The designs are now screen printed by hand in England.

‘This began as a creative response to a frustrating work situation and I think as a reaction to a hectic New York City life my designs have been inspired by nature. My first collection, in particular, is inspired by the natural treasures I would find whilst strolling on the vast and deserted barrier beaches on the south fork of Long Island where I had a beach house. My next collection has a slightly more urban inspiration but it will still feel very organic.’

The fabrics are sold by the metre in different weights suitable for curtains, upholstery and wall coverings. As well as the colours shown here Kate is always happy to work in custom colours. She also sells cushions and table linens in these designs.
