It is our pleasure to offer contemporary production of textiles inspired by Arts & Crafts design. We work with collectors and enthusiasts wishing to decorate in the style as well as others who appreciate the designs and the art of handcrafts.

Sheer curtains of Ecru Linen Scrim are mounted inside and over-curtains of Belgian Linen, hand embroidered "Prairie Vine" design on hidden rings.

Stylized roses, poppy and ginkgo designs are popular motifs of the Arts & Crafts Movement. Our textiles are available completed or as embroidery kits.

An Arts & Crafts style home is distinguished as much by its friendly comfortable atmosphere as it is by its architecture, furniture and other objects.

Gustav Stickley likened the desired effect of a well designed room to the experience of nature;
"...plan and arrange the room that the sense of space and freedom is always felt, and so to preserve the relation between the natural background of the walls and floor and the more prominent furnishings in the room that each part is given its own value and falls into its own place as naturally and inevitably as the trees, hills, valleys and brooks combine in the harmonious relationship that makes a beautiful landscape."
