Heal’s prides itself on its history of discovering and nurturing creative talent. Back in the 1950s, the company was responsible for championing fabric designs by emerging designers of the time including Lucienne Day, Zandra Rhodes and Barbara Brown. Now for the first time since the 1970s, Heal’s has produced an exclusive own-brand fabric collection. Working with both established and up-and-coming designers - each of whom has created an exclusive pattern for Heal’s – the collection celebrates both colour and individuality, drawing inspiration from fabric archives, decorative arts, nature and even jewellery.
Pia Benham, Heal’s head of fabric and design, says: “As part of the relaunch of Heal’s historic fabric department, we wanted to extend our current fabric offering. We hope the new collection will help further strengthen our fabric department’s position as the destination for unique and exciting designs, a place that can inspire our customers and enable them to make their homes a beautiful place to live in. We also wanted to inject fun and excitement into our Heal’s fabric design once again, by working with established as well as emerging designers – in the same way we did in the 1950s and 1960s.”
