Designs inspired by the 4 corners of Britain

Jennifer Jones is a british textile designer giving a new shape and format to the british landscape. Her exploration of our heritage led to the production of some bespoke contemporary accessories.

This particular project of hers aimed to bring forward the ‘old design Britain’ to the ‘new design Britain’, by taking traditional design ideas and materials and putting a contemporary twist on them.

Great Britain was divided up into four parts, as follows…

England

“For this design, I picked an image of a traditional half-timbered Tudor building in Worcester which struck me as quintessentially English.”

Wales

“Trite though it might seem, I decided the good old Welsh leek had potential to provide some design element for this cloth. If you look closely, they are a multitude of greens in and arrangement of fibrous stripes.”

Scotland

“Scotland is so well known for its plaids and tartans it would have been hard to avoid them in this instance. So I took an image of a typical heather, moor and mountains.”

Northern Ireland

“This part of Ireland, Ulster, has a well-established tradition in the linen-weaving industry. For many years the best quality table linens in the world came from there. It seemed to me that this was definitely the yarn of choice for this design.”
