I source heritage and vintage fabrics to create ranges of men's and women's fashion accessories and of home ware. Original and colourful!
Lilac Pearl Textiles produces original products, either singly or in small batches so that no two are alike. Inspired by colour and driven by ethics, the fabrics are heritage, either new or vintage, and the designs have a twist to give each product a unique look and feel. Mid-century influences are seen in the home ware; timeless design in the fashion accessories lend a flair rarely seen in mass-produced products. The business is based in Makers' Yard in Leicester, which provides an exciting environment from which to work - creative, supportive and fulfilling. The business has developed a relationship with a range of galleries both physical and online, and also provides bespoke services for individual clients. The Facebook page is kept up to date with product development and news of recent outlet sourcing.

I've just started to put my bags on my new Folksy shop - see them at folksy.com/shops/LilacPearlTextiles
I hope that you're all going somewhere wonderful for your holidays! Look out for interesting textiles whilst you're there. Here's a thought - why not learn to make a lampshade before you go, and look out for fabric to use once you're back - a lovely reminder of your travels! Next workshop July 14th 10-1. Or wait until you're back and come in September (13th) or October (31st) see Wistow Gallery for further details of these.
Then off to the studio to pack up for Saturday's Bird In Borrowed Feathers Market Lots of scarves, bags, pocket squares, bow ties to delight the customers - come and say hello if you're in Nottingham city centre - we're in Cobden Chambers!
