Many new pieces will be added to the site very soon.

I have been working as a consultant to Leighton House, Kensington, the former home and studio of leading Victorian artist Frederic Lord Leighton (1830-1896). A major redevelopment, just completed, aimed not only at the restoration of the historic house but adding furnishings, similar to those when Leighton lived there.  Photographs from the late 19th century of the house’s interior, show many textiles used as hangings or strewn on furniture, which Leighton collected on his extensive travels in Europe, the Near and Middle East. As part of the project I was asked to identify the textiles and source similar, to add a significant layer to the house’s history. rbkc.gov.uk/museums

A date for your 2023 diaries.  The Textile Society Antique Textile Fair will be held on  Sunday 8 October at Chelsea Old Town Hall.
