Blendworth have worked alongside Wedgwood to create a collection of fabrics and wallcoverings inspired by the brand’s impressive design archive. The resulting collection celebrates the Wedgwood brand yet has the Blendworth aesthetic and execution at its core.
Wedgwood is a global home and luxury lifestyle brand whose 250 year heritage is characterised by its commitment to producing iconic collections for the home. The company dates back to 1759 when Josiah Wedgwood, aged just 29, founded his now famous pottery in the Ivy House works in Burslem, Staffordshire. The English potter soon began to experiment and throughout his illustrious career developed many innovative materials and techniques. As a creative, energetic, and astute business man, Josiah quickly became Britain’s most inspired and successful ceramics pioneer and is remembered today as the “Father of English Potters”.
Today, Wedgwood remains true to Josiah’s legacy of innovation and craftsmanship. Combining an unrivalled heritage with the best of modern design, the brand has evolved to create a relevant and contemporary aesthetic which inspires Expressive Living. Wedgwood is the proud holder of the Royal Warrant by Appointment for tableware and giftware to Her Majesty the Queen.
Volume I is the first collection of Wedgwood Home Fabrics and Wallcoverings created by the Blendworth studio. The bold, contemporary designs are directly inspired by Wedgwood’s archive and available in a range of printed, woven and hand-embroidered fabrics, complemented by a range of wallcoverings created using a classic ‘surface print’ technique.
