- DESIGN INSPIRATION
Flip, reverse it we’ve gone dotty!
Ever wondered about the story behind the name Wicklewood?
Wicklewood was named after our sister company Blithfield’s eponymous fabric, a playful design with dots and stripes that has been in their collection since 1997. When we asked Anne Dubbs, Blithfield’s creative director (click here to read our interview with Anne last year), about the inspiration behind this design she told us that it was inspired by an original 19th-century textile document found in Paris. The original document was altered and adapted to make a printed linen version for their first collection and for over 20 years its versatility has made it a must-have.
We love Wicklewood, so much that we even named ourselves after it. And, what better way to celebrate this brilliant adaptable fabric than backing our entire originals collection in complimentary red, blue and green Wicklewood cotton - making them even more versatile and colourful than before.
