Here’s more about the new products!
The perfect way to freshen up any kitchen table or window, fine textile design company Nicole Phillips England has launched a range of fabric by the metre, available in a variety of designs and a choice of oilcloth or cotton to suit every style of home.
Offering a practical yet pretty solution to protecting your table from spills and scratches, the new oilcloth fabric can be ordered by the metre in the quirky fish or crab-on-a-line designs that are ideal for coastal homes as well as the strawberry, asparagus and trailing rose patterns, which will complement all country inspired interiors. The high quality 100% cotton fabric is available in all Nicole Phillips England patterns on request and can be used for anything from curtains, cushion covers and blinds to tablecloths and other beautiful homemade accessories.
Designed and created by artist, Nicole Phillips, the collection of fabric by the metre highlights Nicole’s hand-painted watercolour designs that have been printed on carefully selected high quality materials.
Inspired by country and coastal themes with a foodie influence, the full Nicole Phillips England range also includes aprons, tea towels, hob covers, napkins, cushions and tote bags, all of which are made here in Great Britain.
The fabric range starts from £26 per metre for oilcloth and £38 per metre for cotton, and is available to buy online at www.nicolephillips.com.
So who is Nicole Phillips?
Founded in 2012 and launched in March 2013, Nicole Phillips has used her creative skills to bring a fresh perspective to fine textile design. The company delivers a broad range of new products with unique designs made to the highest quality standards within the UK.
Founder Nicole Phillips had an idyllic childhood growing up on a small island in the Bahamas before moving to England to complete her education. Her early experiences continue to influence her art today and many of the Nicole Phillips England designs feature themes relating to the sea and nature. Nicole gained a degree in Ceramics at Bath University and she ran a successful studio in West Sussex for 6 years before taking a break to start a family.
The eureka moment came one evening in 2012 when Nicole realised that her artwork was ideally suited for printing on fabric and since then she has been immersed in creating and exploiting the possibilities that this medium of textiles can bring.
Nicole now runs the business with her small team in West Sussex.
