We design our collection in our studio in London and work with expert craftspeople around the world who use traditional techniques to bring our designs to life.

    We seek out, preserve and transform heritage craft, recasting tradition for a modern audience.

    Nurturing narrative is what makes our hearts sing – the colour, culture, provenance, and pattern that come with original pieces. We celebrate those origins, by searching for and forming partnerships with makers around the world, then delivering their hand crafted pieces to your home. 


    Backstrap Loom Weaving, Guatemala & Mexico

    As the name suggests, a backstrap loom is an intricate kind of weaving loom that originated in South and Central America and is operated by hand and attached to the weaver via a strap which fits across their back. Incorporating this ancient weaving technique into the Wicklewood collection was inspired by Caroline’s grandmother – a collector of Guatemalan textiles. 

    • Caroline’s great grandmother, Lilly de Jongh was a scholar, lecturer and collector of Mesoamerican textiles and craft. Living in Central America in the early twentieth century, Lilly pioneered the studies of local textiles and crafts. A bold and inquisitive woman, Lilly rode on horseback around Guatemala visiting indigenous groups and documenting the techniques, motifs and colours that were specific to their woven textiles.

    • Caroline grew up surrounded by stories of her adventurous "Mamita" and her beautiful textile collection. Before launching Wicklewood, Caroline's spent time in Guatemala where she connected with her relatives and traveled to retrace Lilly's steps and meet with many different groups still weaving around the country.

      Wicklewood works directly with weaving cooperatives in Guatemala and Mexico seeking to keep traditions alive.

    Pedal Loom Weaving, Guatemala & Mexico

    The pedal loom is an evolution of the backstrap loom and follows a similar process. This technique can create wider widths and be operated by multiple artisans. First, the warp threads are attached to the loom by hand, then the shuttle is threaded, ready to be passed back and forth with the weft, to create the pattern. Additional details are often added by hand stitching into the fabric.

    CSAO, Senegal

    First discovered by Caroline on a trip to Paris during the early days of Wicklewood, CSAO (Compagnie du Sénégal et de l’Afrique de l’Ouest) is a Paris-based design studio working with a West African craft cooperative, CSAO creates beautiful embroidered textiles while supporting native artisan women with training and regular income. 

    Block Printing, India

    Caroline has always loved the lines and quality of Indian block printing, an age-old Indian artisan technique which uses hand carved wooden blocks to print a repeat motif onto cotton. We work with a family run, eco-friendly printing workshop based in Jaipur in Rajasthan which preserves the local printing traditions while upholding safety standards and socially responsible working practices.

    Blithfield, Silk Screen Printing, England

    An ancient way of printing designs onto fabric, screen printing uses a series of silk screens (one for each colour), masked in certain areas, to force dye through the mesh and transfer a motif onto the base cloth. Caroline spent her childhood in screen printing studios with her mother’s home furnishings company. Wicklewood works with a London based screen printing studio who have been in operation since 1963.

      Rug Weaving, India

      Handwoven by our artisan partners, we work with ancient rug weaving techniques to reimagine traditional designs with a modern twist.

        Reverse glass painting, Peru

        Growing up, Caroline’s grandmother’s house was full of artful pieces from all over the world, in particular techniques from South and Central America. Peruvian reverse glass painting is an intricate technique that originated in the 16th century, as the name suggests, the artist paints the reverse side of the glass, layering the paint to create a motif on the opposite side.
