- DESIGN INSPIRATION
Vibrant colour and beautiful pattern are at the heart of Wicklewood. In tandem with our big sister, Blithfield, we are committed to bringing a perfect palette of prints into your home. Working with artisan partners from Mexico to Mumbai, we design all of our prints and patterns and craft them into an ever-expanding collection of cushions, guaranteed to bring life to your space.
We use a variety of techniques to create patterns for you to adorn your home. Allow us to introduce them...

Born in Guatemala and sometime known as ikat, jaspe creates the iconic dashed patterns via a complex multi-step process. The key to jaspe is tie-dying the yarn before weaving - patterning begins before the fabric even takes shape.
Styling snippet: Less is more when it comes to jaspe - select a piece which coordinates with your overall mood and style with other prints, or use a single jaspe to finish a cosy armchair.

Spot an intricate, all-over pattern? Chances are it’s a jacquard. Originating in the early 1800s, combined weaves allow almost any pattern to be created on one side of the cloth. The other carries the ‘floats’, hidden within your cushion...
Styling snippet: These are the boldest of all our cushions and make an excellent focal point for a theme or look. Choose your favourite and style out from there.

A favourite Blithfield technique, a stencilled screen allows bold linear and geometric designs to be transferred directly onto cloth. Often printed in a single colour, the pattern is created via negative space - the ink takes wherever there are gaps in the stencil.
Styling snippet: Screen printed designs are perfect for finishing a look, bringing colours and prints together beautifully. Plus, they make the perfect statement styled together.
