A Menagerie of Mystical Beasts?

What's that title got to do with fabric I hear you ask?  Well, a collaboration between Clarke & Clarke and artist Emma J Shipley has culminated in a range of fabrics and wallpapers which showcase her amazing talent in creating home to an array of exotic half-real, half-imaginary winged delights, displayed alongside other mystical, magical and exotic creatures.

Jungle Palms - Pink - Wallpaper alongside Kruger Lime, all Emma Shipley for Clarke & Clarke.

The new range, 'Animalia' features tropical parrots, swinging lemurs, fierce tigers and delicately hand drawn giraffes, in a menagerie of coordinating fabrics, wall coverings and furniture, incorporating rich velvets, luxurious satins and shimmering effects.If the exotic is your thing then these amazing fabrics and wallcoverings will surely delight - and at a competitive price point too - the 100% cotton prints retail at £39 per metre and the velvets and wallpaper at £49 per metre/roll respectively.

And if you are interested to know more about Emma and the inspiration behind her designs then visit her website where she describes the sources of her inspiration by revealing the art, books, artefacts, animals and stories that have shaped her art.

The full range of fabrics and wallpapers can be seen in our studio, open six days per week, Monday to Saturday, 9am to 5pm.  We offer a free sampling service and our design team are on hand to give you advice on all your projects from a whole room scheme to accessories and wallcoverings.  We look forward to seeing you soon.
